The College of Urgent Care Medicine® (CUCM), formally known as the Urgent Care College of Physicians (UCCOP), was founded by physicians from the Urgent Care Association (UCA) to provide a physician voice for the specialty. CUCM and UCA continue to work closely to advance the clinical practice of urgent care medicine. In 2016 the UCCOP board voted to include physician assistants and nurse practitioners as members. Thus in early 2017 the decision to change their name was made.
We are urgent care clinicians inspiring excellence in patient care and advancing the specialty through education, advocacy, and research.
Besides a new name the College has made many new changes:
The College of Urgent Care Medicine® election concluded at the UCA Conference in October, and one new board members was elected.
CUCM is pleased to announce the following new addition to their Board of Directors:
Yvette McQueen, MD, CEO/Physician, MedQueen LLC.
For more information on Dr. McQueen, refer to her bio.
CUCM would like to thank Dr. Janet Williams for her years of service to CUCM and the urgent care industry.
