University of Tampa Standardized Patient Program

Hello All,


My name is Georgia Guy and I am the Artistic Director for ThinkTank Theatre, a professional theatre company based in Tampa. ThinkTank has been contracted by The University of Tampa’s Physician Assistant Medical Program (PAMP) to facilitate communication for those personnel who are involved with in Standardized Patient Program (SPP).


At the heart of the Standardized Patient Program is a communications based/role playing initiative crafted specifically for UT’s PAMP. So, it makes sense that the Simulation Director, Dr. Marisa Belote, would reach out to a professional theatre organization and ThinkTank is thrilled to be working with is exciting program.


We’ve been working with Dr. Belote for over 5 years to best determine how to facilitate the needs of program. ThinkTank takes on the task of coordinating the communication needs for those SPP participants for each of the planned simulation clinicals that take place over the course of the year, thus alleviating this task from Dr. Belote and her office.


So, what does this mean? Essentially, once simulation clinical dates are set, we work with Dr. Belote to gather specific breakdown needs and then coordinate with those SPP individuals who will be participating in that unique experience. ThinkTank supplies the Standardized Patients with all the clinical details: agenda, scripts, events details, and follow up. We are there to assist with any questions you might have about scenarios, feedback assistance, and scheduling, as well as parking, location of clinicals, etc. We are the people to talk to.


What do you need to do? First you need to apply for a position with the University of Tampa as a Standardized Patient (listed as patient actor on their website). Click the apply button at the bottom of our screen to be sent to the UT website to begin that process.


Then just touch base with us. Email is best and we have a specific email set up for the SPP – As we send out future communication, you’ll be on our list and able to get in touch with us.


Please, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out. You are welcome to call us at
