Exploring This Job

Join a science club in addition to taking biology and chemistry courses to further develop laboratory skills. Ask a career counselor to arrange a discussion with a toxicologist to explore career options. Part-time jobs in research laboratories or hospitals are an excellent way to explore science firsthand, although opportunities may be limited and require higher levels of education and experience. Spend time on the Web sites of professional associations for toxicologists, such as the Society of Toxicology, to learn more about the profession and networking opportunities.
