Summary/Abstract: In Poland, rudiments of the toxicology, took place in Kraków, due to the fact that the first lecture from this sphere was presented by Józef Markowski in 1824 at the Jagiellonian University, several years after the first toxicological dissertation of Ludwik XVIII – Orfil at University of Paris. This work describes forensic toxicology – the oldest discipline among the others. It is connected with the poisons and intoxications from justice and law enforcement point of view, especially in the field of chemical- toxicological analysis. This paper presents the history of forensic toxicology in Poland and the possibilities of education in this discipline posed by research units. Moreover, an innovative project, related to the proposal to introduce the subject “toxicology” to high schools, will be described. This article is the first work connected with the teaching of toxicology at Polish universities.
