Program Overview

The Integrated Toxicology and Environmental Health Program (ITEHP) is the only training program at Duke which fully prepares students for research careers in Environmental Health and Toxicology. Interdepartmental and multidisciplinary, a PhD degree is awarded by one of several participating Duke departments with the ITEHP certification granted by the Program upon graduation. Upon completion of doctoral studies, these students are experienced in the design, execution and interpretation of current research in environmental health and toxicology. Completion of this training at the doctoral level provides career opportunities in academia, industry, and government, including positions involved in research, risk assessment and policy.
