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, Urgent Caringhas been launched. The first two issues were provided to the entire UCA membership. All other issues are a CUCM-only Benefit. 
  • Individual Physician membership in UCA includes membership to CUCM.  Click here for UCA membership information.
  • NEW for 2019:
    • Physicians, NPs or PAs whose organization has a UCA membership are eligible to receive reduced dues ($95) for CUCM membership.  
    • A Listserv is available for all College members to promote collaboration and networking
    • As of mid-2019, the Urgent Caring newsletter gives readers an opportunity to earn free CME - One hour of CME credit will be available per month, so CUCM members will have access to 12 free CME hours per year!

 CUCM Listserv

Connect with colleagues through the CUCM Listserv. Created just for members of the College to enable discussion on clinical, administrative, and practice management topics. The Listserv is intended to promote the sharing of ideas and collaboration between urgent care providers.

CUCM members can add a topic to the Listserv by sending an email to CUCM@LISTSERV.COUCM.ORG.

The Listserv will be moderated by board member Seema Awatramani, MD, to ensure the content is relevant and free of solicitations and other disallowed content.
