Hennepin County Medical Center is home to the Minnesota Poison Control System, one of the sponsoring institutions of the HealthPartners Institute for Medical Education Fellowship in Medical Toxicology.


The fellowship is 24 months long; fellows spend approximately one third of their time at Poison Control. While on campus fellows regularly participate in educational activities related to toxicology including small group teaching, bedside teaching, simulation, and grand rounds presentations. Fellows also see bedside toxicology consults with HCMC toxicology faculty and participate in and conduct clinical research.

Medical Toxicology fellows are selected via the NRMP Match Program; more information is available at the toxicology fellowship homepage for interested applicants.

About Us

The Department of Emergency Medicine is comprised of the physicians, physician-assistants and staff dedicated to the delivery of emergency medical services for HCMC. Emergency Medicine Faculty physicians provide emergency medical care, teach students of many types, and conduct research leading to innovation of emergency care.

Our Residency Program in Emergency Medicine, its residents, and its graduates are a source of great pride for our Department. It began in 1972 with two residents, years before recognition of the discipline of Emergency Medicine as a medical specialty. Today we match twelve residents per year in our three-year program.
