Join FPM

We provide a collective voice for our 1,600 members who are striving to advance the research and development of new medicines to help prevent and overcome diseases that impact on the lives of patients worldwide. They are all medically-qualified and employed within the pharmaceutical industry, research organisations, drug regulatory authorities – or working as independent consultants.  The strength of our discipline and of FPM is that our members work across a diverse range of careers; from front line clinical trials, to pharmaceutical marketing and medicines regulation.

Membership is open to medically qualified doctors who work in, or have a professional interest in, pharmaceutical medicine.  We have six different types of membership listed below and if you are new to FPM, you may want to look at Affiliate and Membership (MFPM) first.

Contact us on membership@fpm.org.uk if you have any questions about becoming a member.
