The Central Florida Pharmacy Practice Center (CFPPC), located in Tampa, Florida, has
a rich history of educating learners and providing pharmaceutical services. Since
its inception in 1995, the CFPPC has grown from less than ten students to having over
40 students completing their experiential learning experiences each year.
In the summer of 2020, the FAMU Board of Trustees approved the Tampa/Orlando Instructional
Site, renaming it to the "Central Florida Pharmacy Practice Center." The name change
from instructional site to a pharmacy practice center was recommended to encapsulate
the primary location and focus of the facility. The Center trains Introductory and
Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience learners.
Our P4 learners train at facilities throughout the Tampa Bay and Orlando surrounding
areas. Our partners provide high-caliber experiences in the core rotations of medicine,
hospital pharmacy, ambulatory care, and advanced community practice. These healthcare
organizations also offer a wealth of specialized electives such as emergency medicine,
pediatrics, pain management, endocrinology, cardiology, and psychiatry, to name a
few. In CFPPC, we pride ourselves in offering clinical block schedules with our healthcare
partners to afford our students the best training for post-graduate opportunities.
We have strong affiliations with Tampa General Hospital, James A. Haley Veterans Medical
Center, Bayfront Health, Bay Pines Veterans Medical Center, Orlando Veterans Affairs
Hospital and Advent Health Orlando, and Community Health Centers of Pinellas, Inc.
Florida A&M University is rising and recreating its mark in Central Florida. Under
the guidance of our experienced and credentialed faculty, we are leading the next
generation of practitioners. Our full-time faculty are board-certified and have certifications
in pharmacotherapy, geriatrics, ambulatory care, medication therapy management, immunization,
administration, and leadership. Our faculty provides training and mentorship for
our student pharmacist and is embedded as a clinical pharmacist in Tampa General Hospital
and Community Health Centers of Pinellas, Inc. Our faculty offers clinical services
to improve health outcomes.
Central Florida is exciting and provides a cultivating environment to gain invaluable
experiences. Learners will have the opportunity to be innovative and gain the tools
to succeed in their pharmacy careers.
