Please use the drop down menus below to find more information about applying for the MFPH.

Please note that a new Withdrawal and Extenuating Circumstances Policy is in place. Please ensure you read this before submitting your application form.

Before applying for the Final Membership Examination (OSPHE) candidates must have passed the UK's Diploma & Part I or Diplomate Examination (DFPH) or have been exempted from it, e.g. obtained reciprocal recognition of the Diploma & Part I Membership Examination held by the Irish Faculty of Public Health Medicine.

General advice is that the OSPHE should be taken and passed with at least two years (wte) of training remaining.

Trainees working part time should discuss their individual circumstances with regard to the timing of examinations with their training programme director.
