The NTSPP is an organization composed primarily of medical specialists who are qualified, or in the process of becoming qualified, as psychiatrists or psychiatric physicians. The basic eligibility requirement is completion of a residency program in psychiatry accredited by the Residency Review Committee for Psychiatry of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPS(C)), or the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). Applicants for membership must also hold a valid state medical license as an MD or DO (with the exception of medical students and residents) and provide one reference who is an APA member.
Here are just some of the benefits of being a dues paid member:

All psychiatry PGYs are most welcome at our programs. UTSWMC psychiatrists in training who are APA/TSPP members pay only $15 for chapter dues, may pay nothing for dinners, and are preferentially subsidized by ACE donations, while UTSWMC PGYs who are not APA members may pay some or all of the dinner costs, depending on ACE Fund donations. To subsidize a PGY dinner at our programs, please click here.
Psychiatrists who are not members of APA and TSPP are most welcome at events as space permits at the full dinner program price, usually $50 per person for 4th Thursday dinner meeting at present location.
