UT Southwestern Medical Center offers interpreters for a number of foreign languages, should a patient require them. Medical interpreting is available for patients seven days a week.

To ensure that an interpreter is available for an outpatient visit, please notify the clinical practice when making the appointment that the patient will need an interpreter.

Services are also available to assist visual and hearing-impaired patients and guests. Patients who are hearing impaired can receive assistance from the Language Services office. Both William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital and Zale Lipshy University Hospital provide TDD/TTY telephone devices.
