Membership (MFPH)

FPH has three routes to become a member that vary according to an individual’s level of training, experience or contribution to the field of public health. Please see the individual sections below for further information on these standard membership routes and on the benefits and privileges of FPH membership.

Available to individuals passing both the Diplomate (DFPH) and Final Membership (MFPH) examinations.  As with Diplomate Membership, individuals are not required to hold a medical qualification or be on a training programme to be eligible for this category of membership.  Successfully passing both parts of the MFPH examination leads to automatic election to full membership of FPH.

Aside from becoming a member through examination, we also offer through Distinction as well.  If you are looking for information about FPH's Distinction grades and all the Awards/Prizes we celebrate each year then please click here. 

Lastly, we offer a Membership and Fellowship by exemption:

Membership by Exemption will be available for Defined Specialists who submit a portfolio and are subsequently accepted onto the UK Public Health Register (UKPHR) after 1 July 2013.

If you have previously successfully passed the Diplomate and Final Membership Examinations (previously known as the Part A MFPH and Part B MFPH Examinations) and now wish to join as a Member please contact
