About the Role
The Monash Toxicology Unit is accredited for six months full time special skills placement (SSP) training in clinical toxicology and addiction medicine with ACEM. We currently have one full-time toxicology/addiction medicine registrar position. With a recent funding enhancement, we now have an opportunity to offer a second full-time training position.

The toxicology/addiction medicine registrars provide poisoning risk assessment and management advice regarding patients in ED, ICU and in-patient units, under the supervision of the clinical toxicologists. The registrars also work closely with the Monash Addiction Medicine Service to provide risk assessment and management advice on alcohol and other drug misuse, dependence and withdrawal management in patients presenting to Monash emergency departments.
