CPD and Accreditation for Providers

FMLM is an accrediting body for UK based education and training programmes that meet the FMLM Leadership and management standards for medical professionals.

Accreditation provides FMLM members, doctors, dentists, healthcare professionals and healthcare organisations with assurance that a programme has been independently assessed and judged as meeting these important national standards.

Accredit your programmes with FMLM

Accreditation through FMLM will offer providers with a number of benefits, including:

  • Quality assurance and recognition that the programme meets national standards for medical/clinical leadership and management.
  • Use of the FMLM accreditation marque ‘Accredited by the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management’ for marketing and course materials for a period of three years.
  • CPD credits against teaching content.
  • Listing on the FMLM website as an accredited programme and accessible to FMLM members, doctors and healthcare professionals and healthcare organisations.
  • One free promotional article in FMLM’s popular weekly e-newsletter, signposting the programme to 10,000+ subscribers.
  • Up to 20% discount on additional advertising packages aimed at our highly engaged audience.

FMLM accredits a range of UK based leadership and management programmes available to doctors and dentists at all levels, including:

  • Conferences and events
  • Short and long term courses
  • Academic, award bearing programmes (eg undergraduate medical school curricula and postgraduate certificates).

FMLM will consider applications with a range of delivery formats including face-to-face, via blended learning or distance learning. Please note that FMLM do not accredit clinical programmes.

FMLM also accredit undergraduate medical programmes where the Medical leadership and management indicative undergraduate curriculum has been embedded within a programme. Medical Schools can find out more about curriculum accreditation here.

Accreditation can be attained for three years once the programme meets the requisite criteria and standards.

Accreditation status will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and for some instances programmes may be offered limited or conditional accreditation.
