E. Martin Caravati, M.D., M.P.H., FACMT, FACEP, medical director of the Utah Poison Control Center and professor of surgery at the School of Medicine, recently was recognized by his peers as a Fellow of the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology (AACT) at the North American Congress of Clinical Toxicologists' annual meeting in Toronto, Can..

AACT fellows, who are selected through peer review, must have been active members in the organization for at least seven years and demonstrated significant contributions to the AACT and the discipline of clinical toxicology. Caravati was elected to the board of directors of the AACT in 2004 and was elected to a two-year term as treasurer beginning in September 2008. He also serves on the program committee for the North American Congress of Clinical Toxicology.

"Dr. Caravati was an easy choice for the Fellowship Committee," said S. Rutherfoord Rose, Pharm.D., FAACT, director of the Virginia Poison Center and chair of the AACT Fellowship Committee. "He has made numerous contributions to the field of clinical toxicology and has consistently been a leader in the Academy for many years."

Barbara Insley Crouch, Pharm.D., M.P.H., director of the Utah Poison Control Center, said, "The Utah Poison Control Center is proud of Dr. Caravati's contributions to the Academy and fostering advancement in clinical toxicology."

Caravati is a professor of surgery in the Division of Emergency Medicine and adjunct professor in the Department of Pharmacotherapy in the College of Pharmacy.
