Presentation of the Programme and its Objectives

A vast majority of professionals active in the field of toxicology in Europe have not had a specific training in toxicology. These professionals are generally physicians, pharmacists, biologists, chemists, bio-engineers, etc. trained on the job. They often want to obtain a specific training in toxicology in order to improve their expertise and progress in their career.

In order to respond to this need, the Faculty of Public Health at UCLouvain and the Belgian Society of Toxicology and Ecotoxicology (BelTox) jointly launch a new training in Toxicology.

The overall aim of the programme is to acquire theoretical and applied knowledge on the effects of chemicals on human health.
