Urgent care centers provide walk-in, extended hour access for acute illness and injury care that is either beyond the scope or availability of the typical primary care practice or retail clinic. Urgent care provides many health care services in a more cost effective and efficient way than the typical Emergency Department, reserving the nation’s emergency room resources for truly life-threatening conditions. There are over 8,000 urgent care centers in the US as of 2008.
Urgent care helps to improve both access to care and proper utilization of health system resources. It provides patients with medical attention for a large number of acute conditions that their primary physician may be unavailable or unable to treat, and when an emergency room visit is not warranted. A recent CDC study showed that 80% of cases in emergencies rooms are not true emergencies, and therefore could have been more appropriately treated in urgent care centers, relieving the often over-burdened emergency rooms of those non-life-threatening conditions.
Urgent care providers fill the “gap” that can exist between the primary physician and an emergency room. The ability of an urgent care center to provide episodic care for acute, non-life threatening illness and injury is a critical component of any community’s health system.
There is an ongoing, growing demand for urgent care centers as emergency rooms are continually struggling to meet the flow of patients seeking care. New urgent care centers emerge almost weekly across the US to meet this demand. According to AMGA, urgent care specialists make a national average of $200,900 a year.
Positions in the specialty discipline of urgent care are readily available across the United States and around the world. The problem for most physicians is finding the time to explore the options available. Making cold calls to acquaintances or co-workers and sifting through the various ads in journals and on the internet can be very time-consuming. Alternatively, if you are relocating, you may not have any familiarity with hospitals and medical groups or community offerings in a new area. In this case, time and distance can be a problem if you’re using the conventional approaches to finding a job.
