Affiliating Specialists

Affiliation with the Faculty is open to physicians whose names are on the Specialist Register of the UK General Medical Council, but not under occupational medicine, who are working in the field of occupational medicine either full-time or part-time.

Affiliating Specialists have the following benefits:

  • regular updates on occupational health and medicine issues, through our members’ electronic newsletter
  • authoritative guidance on occupational medicine-related matters such as ethics and good occupational medical practice
  • continuing professional development (CPD) through conferences, work groups and briefings
  • participation in the Faculty’s CPD scheme which will provide one part of the evidence required for the revalidation portfolio, and (as from 2013) use of the CPD electronic diary
  • access to the Faculty’s Responsible Officer, for an additional fee, together with updates on revalidation
  • use of members’ room and discounted rate on a meeting room at the Faculty office
  • access to the members’ area on the Faculty website
  • notice of annual prize and fellowship awards
  • a comprehensive review of the Faculty’s work and plans, through the Annual Report
  • advance notice of new publications and discounted prices
  • the opportunity to subscribe to Occupational and Environmental Medicine, an international peer reviewed journal concerned with areas of current importance in occupational medicine and environmental health issues throughout the world, which the Faculty has adopted as its official journal

Such affiliation to Faculty does not, in itself, confer the right to append any postnominals.

For assessment of your eligibility to join the Faculty by this route please complete and submit the application form.

Affiliation to the Faculty is no longer open to specialist occupational physicians who do not hold a Faculty qualification but who are eligible for entry on the Specialist Register by virtue of EU or overseas training and qualifications; such doctors may apply for Membership ad eundem [conferring the postnominals MFOM).
