The Faculty'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.
Equality and Diversity
The Faculty of Public Health will actively promote, and ensure compliance with, the requirements of relevant legislation, such as the: Human Rights Act 1998; Race Relations (Amendment) Act 2000; Disability Discrimination Act 1995 , DDA 2005, Equality Act 2006 Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Act 2001; Data Protection Acts 1984 and 1998 and Gender Equality Duty (GED) 2007.
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.
