Associateship (via the Part 2 MFOM examination)

The Part 2 MFOM examination is open to candidates who are not in approved training posts, as a route to becoming an Associate (AFOM) of the Faculty.  Associateship is a mid-level qualification aimed at doctors looking to enhance their training and competencies in occupational medicine, but who are not able to fill an approved training post.

Entry into the Part 2 MFOM examination via this route is subject to specific eligibility criteria.

Candidates must:

  • have attained the Diploma in Occupational Medicine (DOccMed)
  • have at least one year’s full-time (or equivalent) experience in occupational medicine
  • have at least two year’s full-time (or equivalent) in other specialties
  • provide a signed ‘statement of support’ from a current Member or Fellow of the Faculty

Recommended reading list

The next opportunity to sit the AFOM is the 10th September 2018 (for the Written) and 9th October 2018 (for the OSPE). Registration will be open from 28th May to the 23rd July 2018 (at 17:00).
