Delegate Feedback

Congratulations to all those delegates who have secured highly competitive CST or ST3 jobs! 

More than 100 CST and ST3 offers over the last three years!

From someone who was unrankable last year to getting ranked 2nd in the country I would say that the ACE Medicine course is extremely good value for money and without the faculty I would not have succeeded!

“ACE are a brilliant team and I can’t thank them enough for the help they provided for my CST interview. The CST interview course they ran was fantastic and really motivating.  I did extra 1:1 sessions for interview preparation with ACE and they provided constructive feedback to help me confidently build upon my interview skills. They’re a fantastic team and really helped me feel supported throughout the interview process.  I can’t recommend their team enough to anyone!”
