Antibiotic Stewardship

The college was prominently featured at the third antibiotic stewardship symposium durng the 2019 National Urgent Care Convention and Expo. UCA, CUCM, the CDC and many urgent care organizations met to discuss antibiotic use and resistance as well as paths to improved stewardship. Providing the correct antibiotic, proper dose, duration and only when truly needed was the focus. The college antibiotic stewardship kit can be found here

CUCM™ difference
How is CUCM™ different than the various other groups relating to urgent care medicine?
Because CUCM was developed in cooperation with UCA, CUCM leadership brought with it the knowledge, management principles, and organizational philosophies that have allowed UCA to become the fastest growing organization in the specialty. This growth continues as CUCM builds on this successful foundation. CUCM, with UCAOA, is the only organization in the specialty to support a journal dedicated entirely to Urgent Care Medicine.

Will CUCM™ be offering board certification?
Being a professional society, CUCM™ does not offer board certification in Urgent Care Medicine and has no plans to do so. CUCM™ does support the principle that practicing physicians maintain their certifications in specialty boards for which they are eligible based on their training and experience and which are relevant to the practice of urgent care medicine.
