E-Learning Courses

The FFLM, in conjunction with the University of Ulster, has reviewed and updated the e-Learning courses; these will support colleagues working in forensic medicine and other specialties; they may also be of interest to others, including for example, coroners, lawyers, dentists . The e-learning courses will also assist candidates in their preparation for the following examinations:

  • The Diploma of Legal Medicine (DLM)
  • Part 1 Membership of the Faculty of Forensic & Legal Medicine (MFFLM)
  • Licentiate of the Faculty of Forensic & Legal Medicine (LFFLM – SOM), (previously known as “Diploma in the Forensic and Clinical Aspects of Sexual Assault” (DFCASA))
  • Part 2 Membership of the Faculty of Forensic & Legal Medicine (MFFLM) in Sexual Offence Medicine.

The overall aim of these e-learning tools is to provide an academically challenging and vocationally relevant education for those doctors, health care professionals and other individuals who wish to study Forensic and Legal Medicine at a higher level and obtain a relevant qualification in the subject.

The courses are modular ones, as set out below, and cover the whole of the DLM and part 1 MFFLM syllabuses and the whole LFFLM and part 2 MFFLM (SOM) syllabuses. However, further reading and study is essential to pass any of these examinations.
