Diploma in Forensic Medical Sciences

Established 1998

This examination was originally offered by the Medical Faculty of the University of Glasgow and transferred, after some adaptation, to the Society in 1997.

It is open to registered medical practitioners, dental practitioners, lawyers and others with experience of forensic medical sciences who have completed the part time course run by the University of Glasgow or by the Academy of Forensic Medical Sciences in London, both of which are also offered on-line.
