Following her basic surgical training in West London, she completed a PhD in Molecular Biology at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Imperial College London in 2005, and also during this time completed a Certificate in Adult Education. Miss Alexander completed her orthopaedic specialty training on the North West Thames programme in London (2005- 2010), and during this period also completed an MSc in Orthopaedic Biomechanics from the University of Strathclyde.She has been trained by some of the elite shoulder surgeons in the UK.

Since 2000 she has worked with Mr Andrew Wallace in developing novel arthroscopic techniques and has treated several high-profile professional athletes. Miss Alexander undertook Fellowships in Shoulder Surgery at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh with Miss Julie McBirnie and Mr Mike Robinson to learn complex arthroscopy and shoulder trauma (2010); and at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH), Stanmore, with Mr Simon Lambert and Mr Ian Bayley (2011) to learn complex primary and revision shoulder arthroplasty.
