MFOM – Membership of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine

Full membership of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine (MFOM) is conferred on doctors who have successfully completed specialty training.

Membership can also be achieved by an application based on training which is outwith approved specialty training, or through an application for Membership ad eundem.

It should be noted that:

  • Membership via specialty training makes doctors eligible for entry to the GMC specialist register (and so able to practise as an NHS consultant)
  • Membership gained outwith approved specialty training does not confer this eligibility
  • Membership ad eundem is for doctors who are already on the GMC specialist register.

Further information is available below.
