How to access

In order to access any e-LfH programme, you will need an e-LfH account. If you do not have one, then you can register by selecting the ‘Register’ button in the top right hand corner of the page.

The Medical Examiner programme is currently free to anyone who has an interest in the new working role. In order to gain access to this programme, prospective users simply need to register by selecting the ‘Register’ button in the top right hand corner of the page.

If you already have an account with e-LfH, then you can enrol on to the Medical Examine programme by logging in to the e-LfH Hub, selecting My Account > Enrolment and selecting the programme. You can then access the programme immediately in the My e-Learning section.

The resource is aimed at clinicians and stakeholders involved in the process of death certification. The whole curriculum has been made available to anyone with an interest in the death certification process but in order to apply for the new roles of a Medical Examiner and/or a Medical Examiner Officer, candidates will be required to complete core sessions of the curriculum prior to interview and the whole of the course by the time they start work. It is a legislative requirement that the whole course is completed within one year of starting work so sessions completed in advance of one year will need to be repeated. The Learning Management System is configured to provide a certificate of course completion with timelines. Registration by users who intend to apply to be Medical Examiners or Medical Examiner Officers is therefore essential.

Please note the course is undergoing revision because of the interval between publication and implementation of the reforms; completion of the updated sessions will also be required before appointment because the latest consultation will invoke changes.

It is not necessary for other interested users and stakeholders to register to access the course.
