NEW Membership Categories!

SPUC is pleased to announce that the society has upgraded membership categories to accomplish our goal of including and embracing all who are part of the Pediatric Urgent Care team.  The two biggest changes are as follows. The physician category is now a Provider category and includes Advance Practice Nurses and Physician Assistants. All members in this category have voting privileges.

A new category, “Clinical administrator” has been created to encompass registered nurses, (especially but not confined to), those in leadership roles, medical educators, and health care business professionals who support Pediatric Urgent Care. Members in this category will have voting privileges.  Annual dues for these two categories will be $200 and $150 respectively.

MembershipTypes:

FOUNDERS CIRCLE-$500
Any healthcare provider who meets the Provider or Clinical Administrator categories may join by paying the fee established by the Board of Directors.
PROVIDER-$200
Licensed providers (MDs, DOs, NPs, PAs) with an interest in pediatric urgent care. Provider members have voting privileges and may hold office.
CLINICAL ADMINISTRATOR-$150
Any RN (particularly those in leadership positions), healthcare administrator, or educator who is not a physician or a physician in training. Clinical administrator members have voting privileges and may hold office.
ALLIED HEALTH-$200
Anyone with an interest in the field of pediatric urgent care 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.
TRAINEE-$50
