Children’s Urgent Care seeks to provide best and safest care closer to home. As a group, we have 55+ providers treating patients at seven sites on nights and weekends. As the group has grown, we have identified a need to standardize education and formalize competencies for pediatric urgent care providers. The Urgent Care Skills Series will serve the education needs of physicians and advance-practice providers working in the pediatric urgent care setting. The sessions will also be open to the Children’s Medical Group primary care providers seeking to enhance their skills and competencies in the acute management of common ambulatory conditions.
