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:
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.
