College of Urgent Care Medicine®

About UCA



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.
