How to apply for the The Faculty of Public Health Diplomate Examination (DFPH)

Please click here to view the date of the next DFPH exam.

Please note that we are currently in the process of organising remote online examinations for the Diplomate Exam on Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th November 2020.

For any candidates who had applied for the postponed June 2020 sitting or who have already applied for the next available sitting, your name has been included on a waiting list.

Future applications will be treated in the same way. As such, it is still possible to be added to a waiting list but application forms have been temporarily removed while we make the necessary amendments to the process.

We will contact everyone on the waiting list to let them know when the new application window has opened and what they need to do next. A message will also be included in the eBulletin.

Thank you for your patience while we make the necessary changes to migrate the MFPH examinations online.

Waiting list

If you would like to be added to the waiting list please email the DFPH Exams Co-ordinator
