The FFLM has members from all over the world  and from diverse career paths.  Many of them are diligent volunteers, supporting and promoting the goals and activities of the Faculty.

The specialty covers professionals working in four related disciplines:

  • forensic medical practitioners (forensic physicians, forensic pathologists, forensic psychiatrists, forensic odontologists);
  • medico-legal and dento-legal advisers;
  • clinicians working in secure and detained settings;
  • and medically-qualified coroners.
