The Diploma in Legal Medicine

The FFLM is pleased to announce it will introduce a new examination leading to the post-nominals DLM. This will be a knowledge test identical to Part 1 of the FFLM Membership examination, but marked at a slightly lower level. (The MFFLM is equivalent in standard to MRCP.)

Entry to the MFFLM examinations is restricted to doctors working in a relevant field, but the DLM will be open to all. The current MFFLM Part 1 syllabus and reading list can be seen on the FFLM website. This will be subject to minor modification. The emphasis is on “legal medicine” rather than “medical law”, in that the examination is set and marked primarily by doctors and those with dual qualifications, and not by lawyers alone.
