College of Urgent Care Medicine
About UCA



Welcome to the College of Urgent Care Medicine® (CUCM)

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.

Mission Statement

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:

  • In 2016, the Board of CUCM voted to change their bylaws include physician assistants and nurse practitioners as members of the college.
  • A monthly newsletter has been launched.  The first two issues were provided to the entire UCA membership.  All other issues are CUCM-only Benefit.
  • Individual Physician membership in UCA includes membership to CUCM.  Click here for UCA membership information.
