UT Southwestern Adult Toxicology Clinic

We are proud to offer the only outpatient medical toxicology service in the state of Texas through our Adult Toxicology Clinic and the Pediatric Lead Toxicity Clinic.

Our Clinicians

Our physicians are board certified in medical toxicology and provide both hospital-based and outpatient care to patients with chemical and toxin exposures.

The clinic also provides educational opportunities for our Medical Toxicology Fellowship, available only in a handful of fellowship programs nationwide. Medical Toxicology fellows participate in the evaluation and treatment of patients and the interpretation and analysis of toxicology testing results.

Adult Toxicology Clinic

We provide the most evidence-based evaluation, testing, and management of patients with exposures to pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, drugs, and industrial chemicals through the Adult Toxicology Clinic.

The clinic cares for patients exposed to a wide range of poisons, including:

  • Adverse drug reactions
  • Air, water, and agricultural pollutants
  • Arsenic
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Lead
  • Mercury
  • Other metals and minerals
  • Paint, stripping chemicals, solvents, and degreasers
  • Pesticides
  • Snake and insect envenomation
  • Toxic waste
  • Volatile organic compounds

Pediatric Lead Toxicity Clinic

UT Southwestern's Department of Pediatrics, in partnership with our Division of Medical Toxicology, established the Pediatric Lead Toxicity Clinic to specialize in evaluating and treating pediatric patients with proven or suspected exposure to lead and other heavy metals.

In addition to lead, the clinic provides evaluation and management of other toxicological conditions. Fellows training in Medical Toxicology also attend the clinic and work with faculty.
