This course introduces students to the concepts and nomenclature of toxicology. Emphasis is placed on the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination of foreign toxic materials. The goal is to provide a fundamental understanding of important toxicological principles and their relevance to the more general study of human health. The course utilizes case studies that require students to apply their knowledge of toxicologic concepts and processes to refine issues and solve problems in epidemiology and public health. The course includes two short papers and one student presentation that focus on the importance of general toxicological principles as applied to specific classes and types of toxicants and exposures.
