The Faculty of Public Health's role in training

The Faculty of Public Health (FPH) oversees the quality of training and professional development of public health consultants in the UK, and maintains the professional standards in the discipline. FPH embraces the wider multidisciplinary public health workforce, continually expanding its membership and examinations to all those engaged in professional public health.

All trainees in public health training programmes are required to enrol with FPH within three months of appointment.

Cost of training

The Academy of Medical Royal Colleges has issued a statement regarding the cost of training for royal colleges and faculties and the principles that they should adhere to.

Equality and Diversity

The Faculty of Public Health will actively promote, and ensure compliance with, the requirements of relevant legislation, such as the: The Human Rights Act 1998 and The Equality Act 2010. 

FPH believes that equality of opportunity is fundamental to the many and varied ways in which individuals become involved with FPH; as members of staff and Officers; as advisers to and members of FPH committees; as doctors/other graduates in training and as examination candidates.

Accordingly, it warmly welcomes contributors and applicants from as diverse a population as possible, and actively seeks to recruit people to all its activities regardless of race, religion, ethnic origin, disability, age, gender or sexual orientation.

In addition FPH believes that equality and diversity issues must underpin the core competency areas of the curriculum statement in order to ensure quality public services.
