Using 2917 pb(-1) of data accumulated at 3.773 GeV, 44.5 pb(-1) of data accumulated at 3.65 GeV and data accumulated during a psi(3770) line-shape scan with the BESIII detector, the reaction e(+)e(-) -> p (p) over bar is studied considering a possible interference between resonant and continuum amplitudes. The cross section of e(+)e(-) -> psi(3770) -> p (p) over bar, sigma(e(+)e(-)-> psi(3770) -> p (p) over bar), is found to have two solutions, determined to be (0.059(-0.020)(+0.070) +/- 0.012) pb with the phase angle phi = (255.8(-26.6)(+39.0) +/- 4.8). (< 0.166 pb at the 90% confidence level), or sigma(e(+)e(-) -> psi(3770) -> p<(p)over bar>) = (2.57(-0.13)(+0.12) +/- 0.12) pb with phi = (266.9(-6.3)(+6.1) +/- 0.9)degrees both of which agree with a destructive interference. Using the obtained cross section of psi(3770) -> p (p) over bar, the cross section of p (p) over bar -> psi(3770), which is useful information for the future PANDA experiment, is estimated to be either (9.8(-3.9)(+11.8)) nb (< 27.5 nb at 90% C.L.) or (425.6(-43.7)(+42.9)) nb.
