Translation and Interpretive Services

The University of Mississippi Medical Center offers Spanish interpreters/translators and a Choctaw liaison 8:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Patients also have access to the language line which offers over 200 languages and is available 24/7. These interpreters are credentialed and skilled in medical terminology.

Arrangements can be made for an interpreter for the deaf, use of a TTD or other materials for the hearing-impaired, and materials in Braille for the blind.
