Election of Members of the Faculty to Fellowship (conferring the postnominals FFOM) is the Faculty’s way of recognising those who have made a particularly significant contribution to the practice of occupational medicine, or contributed significantly to the work of the Faculty.
The criteria and application process are determined by the Faculty Board. Members are given the opportunity to apply for Fellowship once in each calendar year. Applications are considered in the first instance by the Fellowship Committee which makes recommendations to the Board in January each year. Only Trustees who are Fellows of the Faculty and the lay Trustees may take part in the election of Fellows.
Successful applicants will be invited to attend the Annual General Meeting to be formally presented to the President and receive their Fellowship certificate.
Submissions for Fellowship and Honorary Fellowships for award in 2016 are not yet open. Fellows are encouraged to propose and second submissions and to support Members in making their applications.
