American Academy of Clinical Toxicology

The American Academy of Clinical Toxicology (AACT) is a not-for-profit multi-disciplinary organization which was established in 1968 by a group of physicians and scientists with the specific goal of advancing the diagnosis and treatment of poisonings.

In 1974, the AACT established the American Board of Medical Toxicology (ABMT) to certify physicians in the specialty of clinical toxicology. This subspecialty was recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties in 1992. In 1985, a second certifying board, the American Board of Applied Toxicology (ABAT) was established for non-physician peer recognition.

AACT has grown into an international membership organization of over 800 clinical and research toxicologists, physicians, veterinarians, nurses, pharmacists, analytical chemists, industrial hygienists, poison information center specialists, and allied professionals. The Academy remains devoted to the advancement of research, education, prevention and treatment of diseases caused by chemicals, drugs and toxins, and to providing a forum via its scholarly journal and educational programs for sharing information, research and training.
