Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology

A Look at The Division of Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology

The division is one of the largest and the most active pediatric pharmacology programs in the world. Our major clinical activities include a consultation service (including adverse drug reactions, environmental toxin exposures and pharmacogenetics), and the Ontario/Manitoba Poison Centre.

In 2018, the Poison Center provided medical information and advice to approximately 75,000 patients and health professionals, serving both the provinces of Ontario and Manitoba, and Nunavut territory. The Division is one of the two major training sites of the Royal College-accredited Clinical Pharmacology/Toxicology Residency program of the University of Toronto.
