Mission Statement

The Society for Pediatric Urgent Care (SPUC) is the professional society for providers of Pediatric Urgent Care medicine. We strive to establish standards for high quality, unscheduled pediatric care outside of the emergency department setting in collaboration with the Medical Home.

We promote the importance of the specialty of Pediatric Urgent Care and set the practice and professional standards using evidence based guidelines. We facilitate communication among national leaders and providers of pediatric urgent care in order to establish quality standards and national practice benchmarks. We define a career path for pediatric urgent care providers and establish educational opportunities to ensure the continued delivery of high quality care.
