Membership of the Faculty of Public Health Exams
Membership of the Faculty of Public Health consists of the Diplomate (DFPH) and the Final Membership (MFPH) examinations.
The Faculty of Public Health Diplomate Examination (DFPH)
The DFPH is intended to test a candidate's knowledge and understanding of the scientific basis of public health. Success in the DFPH leads to election into Diplomate Membership.
The Final Membership Examination (MFPH)
The MFPH is designed as a 'show how' assessment of the candidate's ability to apply relevant knowledge, skills and attitudes to the practice of public health. Success in the MFPH examination leads to election into Full Membership of the Faculty of Public Health.
We welcome applications from anyone with a university degree, it is not necessary to have a medical qualification or to be enrolled in a training course.
Please note that these were formerly the Part A (DFPH) and Part B (MFPH) exams and the new titles reflect a rebranding of the exams only. The syllabus for the exams remains the same and as such, successfully passing the Part A and Part B exams will be accepted as the same as passing the DFPH and MFPH exams.
