The Urgent Care Course (UCC) is a one-year course which prepares RNZCUC trainees for the primary examination UCPEX. The UCC and UCPEX are both part of the urgent care training programme, and compulsory for RNZCUC Fellowship. The UCC is hosted by the Goodfellow Unit of the University of Auckland. Registrars are provided a login and course code so they can access the material.
The material is regularly reviewed and updated, with more major changes being made every few years. Recent minor changes are recorded in this document.
