Only 5 months after she had completed her course Ashley made the transition to the medical industry. ‘The Medtech guidance was amazing, and made it so easy to pick up once starting. That was the best part about having a hard copy of all the coursework – I could go back after starting work and brush up where needed! It also made it so much easier to communicate with the doctors and patients in a professional and informed way. I never felt like I didn’t know what to say or what was being said. I genuinely can’t imagine what it would have been like had I not done this course!’
