Dr. Jeff Suchard, associate professor of clinical emergency medicine in the UC Irvine School of Medicine, has received the inaugural Outstanding Contribution in Medical Toxicology Education Award from the American College of Medical Toxicology. This is the only teaching award given by the college and one of just three national awards. Suchard, an expert on the pharmacology and metabolism of drugs and intoxicants, has made a major mark on the national teaching scene through his outstanding work on the Clinical-Pathologic-Case Competition for the North American College of Clinical Toxicology. He has orchestrated this national case competition since 2001, and it has consistently been the most well-attended and reviewed session at the conference.
