Training Opportunities

While most traditional academic programs do not include an extensive curriculum in regulatory toxicology, training opportunities in regulatory toxicology are provided by a variety of professional societies, academic institutions, and government institutions for students, post doctorates, and professionals. Most toxicology curricula include some regulatory toxicology but students interested in regulatory toxicology careers should explore various opportunities and carefully choose based on program content. Some training opportunities have costs associated with them, while others do not. Grants and fellowships may be available to cover costs of training. For example, the Society of Toxicology provides Supplemental Training and Education Program grants for graduate students seeking to expand their career-related training. We encourage professionals in training positions to explore how aspects of regulatory toxicology may be incorporated into your curriculum.

Some examples of training opportunities in regulatory toxicology are below.
