Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Toxicology is not yet presented as a specific qualification and still forms part of individual modules in syllabi of different degree programs at South African universities. These degree programs fall in a number of scientific disciplines including forensic medicine, pharmacology, marine and veterinary sciences, environmental health, environmental toxicology, and occupational hygiene. The level of toxicology taught in these syllabi may be basic and biased towards that particular subdiscipline. There is an increasing awareness for these tertiary institutions to introduce or incorporate toxicology into new or existing undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs. Toxicology needs to develop into a discipline in its own right and create opportunities to study and obtain higher degrees in one or more of the many subdisciplines of toxicology.
