A Guide for Medical Interpreter

Osaka University Hospital makes it a rule to provide patient’s medical care with safety and security.
However, if we cannot communicate with a patient in Japanese, it would be difficult to provide safe medical treatment.
When we think it difficult to communicate with a patient in Japanese, we arrange medical interpreters at the following rates. A reservation is necessary.
