UTSW Psychiatry Residents’ Organization (PRO)

  • PRO’s mission is to brighten and enrich residents’ lives.
  • All UTSW Psychiatry residents & interns are automatically members of PRO and are divided into “families”. Families are composed of residents from each level of training, along with faculty godparents. The purpose of the family is to ensure each resident has a core group of colleagues to reach out to for guidance, advice, and any other help along the way in residency.
  • The leadership of PRO is served by two co-presidents, who are also PGY-3 class representatives. PRO Presidents are elected by their peers annually.
  • The PRO Webmaster is a person or team responsible for designing and maintaining the website in service of the organization. The webmaster acts as a liaison with the PRO leadership in creating appropriate content for the site, as well as resolving technical issues and ensuring smooth operation.
