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 meeting’s expenses.
All physicians (MD/DO) must pay the CME fee. If you do not pay the fee and add it on after September 17, 2015, you will be charged an additional $50 administrative fee.
The Urgent Care Association of America designates this live activity for a maximum of 12 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM . Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the Urgent Care Association of America and the Urgent Care College of Physicians. The Urgent Care Association of America is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
