Preparing for Fellowship

Fellowship of FGDP(UK) recognises the diversity of an individual’s expertise and their achievements in delivering excellence in primary dental care.

More about Fellowship of the FGDP(UK).

The Preparing for Fellowship programme is a unique opportunity to move your career to the next level. It allows you to consolidate personal development, evidence your professional practice and, upon successful completion, entitles you to use post-nominal letters FFGDP(UK). 

Fellowship marks out a candidate's ongoing commitment to professional development and reflective practice, and diligence in upholding the highest clinical and other standards in the following domains:

  • Clinical
  • Management and/or leadership
  • Teaching, education and/or assessment
  • Research
  • Law and Ethics

The Preparing for Fellowship programme is particularly suited to individuals who can exhibit a significant contribution to the dental profession. You will be required to demonstrate important achievements and impact in the domains highlighted above, over a sustained period.
