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).
