SPUC is pleased to announce that the society has upgraded its membership categories to accomplish our goal of including and embracing all who are part of the Pediatric Urgent Care community. The former physician category is now called Provider and includes Advanced Practice Nurses and Physician Assistants. All members in this category have voting privileges.
The Clinical Administrator has been created to encompass registered nurses, especially, but not confined to those in leadership roles, medical educators, and healthcare business professionals who support pediatric urgent care. Members in this category have voting privileges.
SPUC has added a new International membership for licensed providers (MD, DO, NP, PA, RN) or clinical healthcare administrators with an interest in pediatric urgent care. International members are eligible to hold office and have voting rights.
|Any SPUC member in the Provider or Clinical Administrator categories may join the Founders Circle, established by the Board of Directors. This category is for those with a special interest in supporting the growth of SPUC. Founders Circle members will be recognized on the SPUC website, in certain SPUC publications, and at SPUC’s annual meeting. A portion of the Founders Circle membership dues will fund the Michael Moran Scholar Award.|
|Licensed providers (MD, DO, NP, PA, RN) with an interest in pediatric urgent care. Provider members have voting privileges and may hold office.|
|Licensed providers (MD, DO, NP, PA, RN) or clinical healthcare administrator with an interest in pediatric urgent care who reside outside of the United States. International members have voting privileges and may hold office.|
|Any person (MD, DO, NP, PA, RN, healthcare administrator, educator), particularly those in an urgent care leadership position, who does not do patient care. Clinical Administrator members do not have voting privileges and do not hold office.|
|Anyone with an interest in the field of pediatric urgent care (RN, LPN, MA, RRT, PharmD, Medic) who does not meet the criteria of any other category may become an Allied Health member. Allied Health members are not eligible to vote or hold office.|
Any student, resident or healthcare provider involved in a training program. Trainee members are not eligible to vote or hold office.
