Hi Trisha. While this is not a field that I have recruited for, I have learned that the best way to find out about any field is to go online and ask. I used Google.

Here is some of what I found to get you started.


<span style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34);">Education Requirements. In general, forensic toxicologists have a bachelor's degree in the natural sciences, like chemistry or </span>biology<span style="color: rgb(34, 34, 34);">, or in forensic science. Coursework in math, human medicine, pharmacology or veterinary medicine also could be relevant in this field.</span>

Trisha- you will be a scientist. You will spend all your time studying microbiology, serology, chemistry, and related subjects, and your work will be in laboratories. Don't fall into the Hollywood trap in thinking you will be out on crime scenes. That's a different job entirely!
