forensic chemistry, learning chemistry, forensic medicine, intoxication


The various insufficiencies or even diseases generated by the intoxication with the various substances, affect the quality of life - both of the intoxicated person and of those in the social environment in which he lives and works. The present article aims to analyse a series of perspectives regarding the role and importance of studying chemistry in the professional training of future doctors, especially residents in the field of forensic medicine.
