Rattler Nation has learned that Florida A&M has removed the dean of the College of Pharmacy, Michael Thompson today.  The move comes after the college's board passage rate dropped to dead last among all U.S. colleges of pharmacy.

Along with Thompson, College of Education Dean Traki L. Taylor, Ph.D and Journalism Dean Ann W. Kimbrough were also dismissed today in Interim President Larry Robinson's first administrative shake up since the initial round of firings he made during his first days in office.  

Seth Ablordeppey, a well respected pharmacy researcher who previously served as interim Dean will once again lead the college. While Patricia Green-Powell has been tapped to take over the reigns of the College of Education, again.  Green-Powell previously lead the college from 2012-15.
