Toxicologic Pathology Training Program

A comprehensive Toxicologic Pathology Program is offered within the residency program of the TiHo. The program is subdivided into different seminars (modules) and receives support from speakers from Pharmaceutical and Chemical companies mainly located in Germany. The organ based lecture program provides a general overview on the morphology of organ systems, and examples of pharmacology based changes are part of the modules. Furthermore, examples of toxicity, clinical pathology parameters, biomarkers, carcinogenesis models and induced tumours are presented. The modules also will highlight the tumour classification in rodents. Additional general subjects such as introduction to regulatory toxicology, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics, new technologies (-omics) and classical examples of toxicologic pathology are given.
