Recognition for Urgent Care Physicians
At the Board of Certification in Urgent Care Medicine (BCUCM), a member board developed by the American Board of Physician Specialties®, we offer board certification to highly qualified primary care physicians who have extensive experience in Urgent Care medicine. This rapidly growing specialty has become increasingly popular with patients throughout North America. By becoming board certified in this area of expertise, you have the opportunity to distinguish yourself and your office from the competition.
Board certification is a trusted indicator that many patients rely on when researching physicians in their community. This is why becoming board certified in Urgent Care is so valuable. If a patient is trying to decide which Urgent Care center to visit in their community, the availability of an Urgent Care board certified physician in a walk-in center can be a strong incentive for the patient to visit your clinic.
The board certification process is available to all allopathic and osteopathic physicians who practice Urgent Care medicine in North America. To be eligible, the physician candidate must:
- Have completed residency training in an ACGME/AOA-approved program
- Practice Urgent Care medicine for a minimum of 1400 clinical hours per year
- Adhere to additional board certification eligibility requirements found here
If you are a physician who has opened an urgent care facility or specializes in urgent care medicine, you deserve the opportunity to be recognized for your mastery of the core competencies of this burgeoning medical specialty. Through the BCUCM, you can present yourself to your peers, patients, and prospective patients as an expert in Urgent Care, and be part of a growing community of physician leaders who are sculpting the face of modern healthcare.
