Hello there! Welcome to ACE Courses.
I would love to share with you three of my professional passions! The first is research, with a focus on finding ways to prevent miscarriages, a devastating and common problem. The second is the charity Ammalife, which strives to stop mothers dying during childbirth in poor countries. Every 2 minutes a mother dies in childbirth, and we can do so much to make a difference. The third is ACE Courses, founded over 10 years ago, with the idea of sharing what I have learnt, and helping and encouraging others to grow as excellent doctors. Along the way, I found many like-minded doctors, and with them, we now have a team of tutors with deep commitment to teaching and nurturing doctors.
Why do we teach MRCOG students? It is because we believe doctors who have the right knowledge and the right skills have the best chance of giving their patients the right outcomes – which could mean a serious complication averted, or even a life saved!
Over the years we have run many courses and helped many doctors pass their MRCOG exams. Our courses aim to build confidence both inside and outside of the exam halls. We have developed many techniques that make learning fun, easy and effective. The techniques include well-established approaches such as mind-mapping and memory palace creation, as well as other new home-grown ones!
We find ourselves staying in touch with many candidates long after the course is over as we continue to share knowledge and, in some cases, we have had the pleasure of past candidates joining our tutor group.
We make this promise to every candidate who comes to our course: we will dedicate ourselves to help you in any way we can both for your exams and for your overall growth as a specialist.
We look forward to seeing you on the course!

Why should you come on our course?
If you are looking for a course that gives you the best chance of passing the MRCOG exam, then our course is right for you. But what makes our course right? Here are 6 reasons.
The courses are comprehensive, with systematic coverage of all modules of the RCOG syllabus.
Our courses are highly relevant. We remain in touch with past exam candidates to ensure the questions and the materials we use are directly relevant to the exam.
Our courses rely on a question and answer format that emulates the MRCOG exam, so that you get an accurate sense of the type of questions that you are likely to face in the exam.
We use ‘mini-lectures’ of 3 – 5 minutes to provide intensive teaching that is highly engaging and interactive. These legendary lectures give you the essence, stripped of any padding.
You will have the opportunity to do mock exams so that you get an experience that is close to the real exam!
You will have unrivalled pre-course and post-course support. A team of enthusiastic and talented teachers are here to help you before and after the course.
Our aim is to help you all the way to the exam! We look forward to seeing you in Birmingham!
