UCAOA recognizes the importance of continuing education (and especially urgent care-specific courses) for our physicians. To provide CME to physicians, UCAOA must maintain our accreditation through the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education. This process requires significant fees and staff hours to ensure that stringent guidelines are followed by UCAOA as well as all vendors and sponsors involved in our meetings in order to maintain our good accreditation standing.
Most other physician medical association conferences are funded or supported by corporations and/or pharmaceutical companies. UCAOA is working to align itself with corporate partners to offset attendee costs and corporate support has been growing but is not at a level yet to wholly underwrite the conference's expenses.
All physicians (MD/DO) must pay the CME fee. If you do not pay the fee at the time of registration, you will be charged an additional $50 administrative fee.
