Membership of the Faculty of Forensic & Legal Medicine (MFFLM)

The MFFLM examination consists of two parts, 1 and 2.

FFLM Part 1 Examination

The next exam is on Friday 13 October. The application period opens around eight weeks before the exam date.

FFLM Part 2 Examination

In 2017 the written exams for MFFLM GFM and SOM will take place on Friday 10 March 2017 at the Royal College of Physicians.

The Part 2 OSCE exams (MFFLM GFM and/or SOM and LFFLM GFM or SOM) will take place on Saturday 11 March 2017 at St George’s, University of London.

Please see more information on the right-hand side of this page, under More Information. It is essential that candidates read the Regulations before applying for the exam.

NB: FFLM has agreed to recommend that all practising forensic physicians should be trained to Immediate Life Support standard rather than Basic Life Support as previously and a current certificate of the former will be required by candidates undertaking Part 2 of MFFLM (GFM and SOM).


The FFLM, in conjunction with the University of Ulster, has developed an E-Learning course to prepare candidates for the MFFLM Examination. Click here to find out more.
