Professional Education

Professional Education is considered a critical activity at NJPIES. We offer many educational programs for licensed health care professional residents in training and students. Our professional staff provides programs on-site at NJPIES as well as at universities and health care facilities throughout New Jersey.

NJPIES is a major teaching site for pharmacy students/residents, nursing students and medical students/residents. Those completing their toxicology (drug/poison information) rotation at the center become “part of us” and learn about the management of patients exposed to medications, chemicals and environmental toxins. During the rotation, these health care professionals learn how to provide evidence-based responses to specific medical inquiries that arise.

In conjunction with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey’s (UMDNJ) School of Nursing and the UMDNJ Center for Continuing and Outreach Education, NJPIES offers a FREE continuing education program for physicians, pharmacists and nurses. While spending a day at NJPIES, these health  care professionals learn about our activities and poison management.

For more information on these programs, please contact Bruce Ruck, PharmD. at bruck@njpies.org
