“What exactly is a medical toxicologist?”  I have been asked this question by physicians and attorneys alike.  The technical answer is that medical toxicology is a subspecialty officially recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.  The American College of Medical Toxicology defines it as the field of medicine dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of poisoned and envenomated patients.  This includes the adverse health effects of medications, occupational and environmental toxins, and biological agents.
