Fellowship and Honorary Fellowship

On 30th April 2009, the Faculty Board agreed on a new route to Fellowship in addition to the original ‘procedure A’ route. In future, ‘procedure A’ would be regarded as an exception and the Registrar should be contacted in the first instance for applications under this procedure. In addition, the number of years post-membership experience has been reduced to 5 years.

Candidates for Fellowship will normally self-nominate, although they may receive encouragement and support from Fellows to do so.

Fellows can be elected from:

    • Members of the Faculty of at least 5 years’ standing (or in the case of Foundation Members, those who have been eligible for Foundation Membership for at least five years) who are making significant contributions to the practice of Forensic and Legal Medicine.
    • Members of the Faculty of less than five years’ standing (or in the case of Foundation Members, those who have been eligible for Foundation Membership for less than five years) whose distinction in any department of Forensic and Legal Medicine is such as to warrant early and exceptional admission to Fellowship.

Further details on the new Fellowship process can be found in the application guidance document.
