Many clinical toxicologists provide toxicology training and teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Their clinical expertise means that they may be consulted on environmental, occupational and legal aspects of chemical exposure. Some clinical toxicologists serve on Government advisory committees, using their expert knowledge to offer independent advice on matters of public health importance.
Clinical toxicologists may be involved in collating and assessing data on the adverse effects of prescribed drugs, which are then fed back to the pharmaceutical industry for further investigation.
Clinical toxicologists often find that helping to restore the health of patients suffering from poisoning is very rewarding.
