Recertification of Membership (MFSRH / FFSRH)

The Faculty has had a mandatory continuing medical education programme (known as recertification) since its inception in 1993. There are two programmes, one addressing the needs of Fellows and Members detailed on this webpage and a separate one addressing holders of the Diploma of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health. (DFSRH).


In order to bring the FSRH recertification requirements into parity with other Faculties and the Royal Colleges, doctors recertifying from 2012 are required to gain 250 credits in each five year recertification cycle. Doctors should now aim to collect credits at a rate of 50 per year. 

Statement of Principle

The Faculty supports the Ten Principles for College/Faculty CPD schemes as published by the Academy of Royal Medical Colleges
