homeThe Postgraduate Education in Toxicology (PET) is the Dutch national programme for vocational postgraduate training in toxicology.

The primary target group of the modular PET curriculum are those who wish to receive the training required for the register of professional toxicologists by the Netherlands Society of Toxicology (NVT). In addition, the separate PET courses provide in-depth knowledge in specific areas of toxicology for professionals from the private as well as the public sector and are also suited for PhD students to broaden their scope of toxicology as a part of their training programme. The PET programme is fully approved by the EUROTOX Subcommittees for Education and for Registration.

The PET is a coordinated joint effort of 8 Dutch universities.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the courses may be re-scheduled or offered online instead of on-location. For more and updated information please contact the PET office at office.pet@uu.nl.
