TEXAS DISASTER RESOURCES

In the aftermath of the devastating storms and flooding that hit our state in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, state agencies have deployed resources to the affected areas, health plans have made policy changes, millions of dollars have been raised through donations, and thousands of Texas physicians have put in extra time and effort to address the public health concerns.

The Federation of Texas Psychiatry will continue to update this page regularly to assist in providing resources to you, your practice, or others in need in securing services and disaster relief, in addition to providing coping and care services for your patients. Recently added, Texas Medical Association has financial assistance available to rebuild practices damaged by Harvey, in addition to the latest information for physicians affected by the disaster. Those links can be accessed by clicking the following link: HURRICANE DISASTER RESOURCES.  

COMMENTS FROM OUR MEMBERS

“As a resident member of TSPP, I’ve learned so much about organized medicine. The Resident Fellow Meeting allows residents and fellows from across the state to discuss current issues, collaborate between programs, and find a voice in our profession. It has also offered great networking opportunities, and I’ve been able to meet many wonderful future psychiatrists whom I keep in touch with outside of meetings. We have a social outing during each meeting which also builds these connections. Residents also have the ability to sit on other committees to lend our voice to the leaders in our profession. I personally sit on the Academic Committee, and had the privilege of presenting a project from my program aimed at improving resident and fellow participation in organized medicine. I’ve really enjoyed my time in TSPP, and look forward to membership after graduation.” – Rachel E Zettl, M.D., M.Ed., PGY-3 resident at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW)

“TSPP 2018 was an amazing meeting! Being able to interact with fellow members, share experiences, and insights from around the state was definitely a remarkable experience. Also, the lecture series allowed us to partake in the expert’s views on issues that impact our current practice and learning environment as well as becoming aware of the trends that our field is following. Being active in organizations that represent our profession is crucial to support and shape the future of our field. Having a forum for resident/fellow participation is an encouraging opportunity to witness the responsibility we carry as psychiatrists and voice concerns as well as goals that pertain to current and future trainees.” -Ramon Aragon, M.D., PGY-3 resident at Texas Tech El Paso and also new Chair-Elect for 2019-2020 academic year

“As a resident, it’s hard to find the time to meet colleagues from different cities and programs. The TSPP Annual Convention provides a unique opportunity for all of us to gather, share stories, and collaborate. It inspired me to see so many residents travel from all over the State to talk about the present state and future of psychiatry. There was a representative from nearly every psychiatry program in Texas! We learned so much from each other and made new friends. I strive to come back as many times as I can and encourage other residents and fellows to do the same.” – Lynh Phan, D.O., PGY-2 resident at John Peter Smith

“The RFM section was able to work with the executive committee to create the organization’s Debra Atkisson Resident Fellow Member Scholarship Award. This will help give the next generation of psychiatrists an opportunity to be even more involved in organized medicine.” -Karen Duong, D.O., PGY-3 resident University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW)
