Graduates employed in a toxicological field who wish to obtain a recognized academic qualification in toxicology
Swiss Centre for Applied Human Toxicology, SCAHT o Universities of Basel, Lausanne and Zürich o Centre of Competence in Analytic Chemistry and Toxicology, CCCTA o Swiss Society of Toxicology o Swiss Register of Toxicologists o Centre Ecotox, eawag/EPFLThe Master of Advanced Studies in Toxicology provides a comprehensive educational programme recognized by national and international professional bodies as a postgraduate academic qualification in toxicology. It is designed to fulfill the needs of recently graduated students who are already in employment and potential employers in industry, academia and regulatory bodies.
The assessment of the potential risk of chemicals and pharmaceuticals to which humans and the environment are exposed provides the necessary basis for protection measures. This increasingly complex process has created a demand for qualified scientists in industry, academia and regulatory bodies with the appropriate knowledge, experience and professional qualification.
The MAS in Toxicology was initiated in 2010 by the Swiss Centre for Applied Human Toxicology (SCAHT) as part of its mandate to promote education and continued professional development in this important discipline. The curriculum has been developed by the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences of the Universities of Geneva and Lausanne (Ecole de Pharmacie Genève-Lausanne). The master is part of an educational platform of collaboration with the Universities of Zürich and Basel, the Swiss Society of Toxicology, the Swiss Register of Toxicologists, the Centre of Competence in Analytic Chemistry and Toxicology (CCCTA), the Centre for Ecotoxicology (eawag/EPFL), regulatory authorities, and the pharmaceutical and chemical industry.
The curriculum is designed to comply with the regulations for toxicological training set by the Swiss Register of Toxicologists1 and EUROTOX2. Successful completion of the course may be used towards fulfillment of the requirements for professional registration as a toxicologist.
Master Thesis 30 ECTS Credits Prof. Martin Wilks The master thesis involves 14 weeks of research work in one of the areas of toxicology covered by the MAS programme.
