What We Do
The Division of Medical Toxicology provides the best toxicology care to patients in Texas, particularly North Texas. In addition to serving our community, we strive to expand the knowledge within the toxicology specialty through scholarly activities.
Quality patient care is our top priority. We provide the only consistent, inpatient bedside toxicology care in North Texas and the only outpatient toxicology program in the state.
Our practice setting is vast and we offer care in various ways, including:
- At William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, Parkland Hospital, and Children’s Medical Center Dallas
- Through the Parkland Perinatal Intervention Program that provides addiction care to pregnant patients at Parkland Hospital
- In outpatient clinics at UT Southwestern and Children’s Medical Center Dallas
- In partnership with the North Texas Poison Center at Parkland, one of more than 50 poison centers in the country
Outside our classroom and patient care service, we routinely provide education to various groups, such as physicians in other specialties, and nonphysicians such as the Drug Enforcement Agency, analytical chemists and toxicologists, medical examiners, and the Texas Department of Public Safety.
In addition to our clinical expertise, we are fully committed to providing world-class education and training to our fellows, residents, medical students, and other health care providers. Our Medical Toxicology service generally has over 100 “rotators” during an academic year who are medical students from various medical specialties and Pharm.D. candidates. The fellows oversee the education of the rotators with support of the faculty.
