Tampa Bay Street Medicine

About Us


The goal of TBSM is to improve access to healthcare; connect patients with community resources to establish reliable, longitudinal care; engage individuals who are skeptical of healthcare by establishing respectful, trusting relationships; and create a valuable service-learning opportunity for healthcare students that facilitates social and cultural competency.

These objectives are achieved through the following programs:

Street Runs: Street Runs provide medical care directly in the unsheltered setting, on the sidewalks and public spaces of downtown Tampa.

Continuity Clinic: The Continuity Clinic serves as the setting through which TBSM’s patient population can access reliable, longitudinal healthcare.

Refugee Clinic: Refugee Clinic provides free medical care to refugees and asylum seekers in Hillsborough County.

Medical Van: Working with Pioneer Medical Group, TBSM operates a daily free clinic at various sites throughout Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco counties out of the Medical Van.

Other Programming: TBSM is an approved Narcan distributor, runs a harm reduction program with the Florida Department of Health Infectious Disease Elimination Act (IDEA) Exchange Program, and as of January 2021, received funding to lead a COVID-19 vaccination campaign with our patients.
