Applications for Election of Members (MFPM) to Ordinary Fellowship (FFPM) 2021

Fellowship of FPM recognises an individual’s significant contribution to both the practice and science of Pharmaceutical Medicine and to the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine.

Fellowship is an accolade held by some of the most exceptional and innovative pharmaceutical physicians in the world. It is a mark of achievement and skill as a doctor and recognises an ongoing contribution to the profession and the specialty.

Members (MFPM) are eligible to apply to become a Fellow (FFPM) if they have either been a Member for eight or more years, or have been of the GMC Specialist Register for Pharmaceutical Medicine for at least two years. This is calculated to the end of May 2021 when the Fellowship and Awards Committee meets, so those awarded Membership on, or before, 31 May 2013, or entered on to the Specialist Register on, or before 31 May 2019. Applications will be accepted from January each year and we will contact you if you meet the eligibility criteria.

Further information on eligibility is included on the application form, or you can contact membership@fpm.org.uk.

You can find the annual fees for Fellowship on our Fees and Payments page. Please note, new Fellows are not charged Fellowship fees until the January after their election.

The closing date for applications is midday 22 March 2021.

Nominations for Election of Honorary Fellows, Honorary Members and Members by Distinction 2021

Honorary Fellowship and Membership

Honorary Fellowship recognises the recipient’s eminence within their own field and their outstanding contribution to pharmaceutical medicine.  Honorary Membership recognises those who have made significant contributions in the fields of research, teaching, medicine, general science or society. Honorary Fellows and Members need not be medically qualified and these honours are strictly limited.

Members by Distinction

This is an exceptional route to Membership for individuals who have made a significant contribution beyond the normal day-to-day practice of pharmaceutical medicine. These awards are limited and may not be made every year. Members by Distinction have the same rights, privileges and obligations as Members and may also apply for Ordinary Fellowship (FFPM).

Further guidance is included on the nomination form or contact membership@fpm.org.uk

The closing date for nominations is midday 22 March 2021.
