Examinations

The FFLM currently offers four exams

Please click on each, below, for further information. Our candidates are paramedics, doctors, nurses, lawyers, dentists, among other healthcare professionals.

For information on fees, diary and our cancelations policy please click here. Exact exam dates, if available, can be found below.

All written-exams (DLM, Part 1 exams and Part 2 SAQ exams) are now online and therefore candidates should read the available information on TestReach’s website. OSCE and OSPE candidates should familiarise themselves with Microsoft Teams.

Results are normally published within four weeks from the date(s) of the exam(s). Specific exam dates, if available, as well as application periods, can be found below.

Note that membership is not automatic following success in our exams. Successful candidates need to apply for membership (Membership, Licentiateship, Affiliateship or Associateship) separately.

Should you have any queries about our exams, after studying the relevant webpages, please email our Examinations Manager, Mr Jay C Costa, at jay.costa@fflm.ac.uk.

Exam news

All our written exams (Part 1, DLM and SAQs) as well as our OSPE, are now online (candidates can sit them at home), either via Microsoft Teams or TestReach.

We are delighted to announce that Scenesafe will provide a prize of £250 to the candidate with the top mark for the Part 1 MFFLM/DLM exam in 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024.
The 2021 winner is Dr Alison Young!

From November 2021 successful DLM candidates who obtained Distinction can apply to become an Associate or Affiliate of our Faculty and, once a member, may use the postnominal AFFLM (DLM) instead of just DLM. This applies to all successful Part 1 MFFLM candidates too, as they have in effect passed the DLM exam with Distinction (the same paper is used).
