Dr. Michael Greenberg, MD

Dr. Michael Greenberg has extensive experience in emergency medicine and was instrumental in the initiation and development of the clinical toxicology programs at the University of Florida.

“I offered to provide my expertise in getting a graduate program in clinical toxicology off the ground that is tailored for a wide audience while providing focused information for healthcare providers.”

Dr. Greenberg currently holds board certifications in four medical specialties: Medical Toxicology, Occupational Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Addiction Medicine. Dr. Greenberg holds the rank of Emeritus Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Drexel University College of Medicine and is currently an Adjunct Professor at UF, where he contributes to the clinical toxicology program. He has published over 200 peer reviewed articles and has edited seven textbooks. He is the current Editor in Chief of the Visual Journal of Emergency Medicine, published by Elsevier.

“I experienced firsthand the capabilities and high standards of online and distance education at University of Florida,” said Dr. Greenberg.

He has served as the program director for the Medical Toxicology Fellowship Training Program at the Drexel University College of Medicine, where he also served the Chief of the Division of Medical Toxicology.

“This field has long been a passion of mine and it’s growing fast in the United States.”

Dr. Greenberg is a past president of the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology (AACT). AACT is the largest organization of clinical toxicologists in the world.

“Over the years, these areas will become more fleshed out by professionals who take the path of learning about clinical toxicology, and hopefully many of our students from University of Florida will fill in that need.”
