Global Toxicologic Pathology Training Program
The Global Toxicologic Pathology Training Program of the NIEHS Division of Translational Toxicology (DTT) provides here a list of resources to enhance career development, training, and the practice of toxicologic pathology worldwide.
Career Development Resources in Laboratory Animal Medicine, Toxicologic Pathology, and Toxicology
- The American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine has resources for career outreach as well as mentoring and career development.
- Looking Forward: Cutting-edge Technologies and Skills for Pathologists in the Future: The Society of Toxicologic Pathology Career Development and Outreach Committee summary of a career development workshop on digital pathology, artificial intelligence, clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats technology, microRNAs, and next-generation sequencing. (Last reviewed March 2022)
- Practical Strategies for Navigating Toxicologic Pathology in One’s Early Career: The Society of Toxicologic Pathology Career Development and Outreach Committee summary of a career development workshop discussing evolving roles of the toxicologic pathologist and tools for career development. (Last reviewed March 2022)
- Society of Toxicology Education-Career Development Sessions: These talks cover a variety of topics targeted towards early career toxicologists.
DTT Training Modules
These training modules use a combination of presentations and links to digital images to guide the user in training in specific topics of toxicologic pathology.
- Carbon Disulfide Neurotoxicity (4MB): This case-based study module features a downloadable pdf. This module of carbon disulfide neurotoxicity studies at NIEHS describes behavioral abnormalities, morphologic alterations, and molecular changes resulting from carbon disulfide exposure.
- Neuropathology Training Module (20MB): This study set features a downloadable pdf and links to publicly available whole slide images. This study set uses DTT archival study material of test articles known to have neurological clinical signs and neuropathological lesions.
- Pathology Data Interpretation of Carcinogenicity Studies (2MB): This study module features a downloadable pdf describing how pathology data are interpreted for DTT carcinogenicity studies.
Pathology Training Resources
Useful for veterinary anatomic pathology trainees and others interested in gross pathology, histopathology, and comparative pathology.
- Davis-Thompson Foundation for the Advancement of Veterinary and Comparative Pathology: The Davis-Thompson Foundation provides a variety of resources for education and training in veterinary and comparative pathology.
- Noah’s Arkive: An open repository of veterinary gross pathology images for individual study.
- U.S. Department of Defense Veterinary Pathology Residency Program: This program provides virtual slides and study materials in Wednesday Slide Conference and Veterinary Systemic Pathology training tools, which are helpful for specialty board certification preparedness.
