Mr Alam completed higher surgical training in oral and maxillofacial surgery in 2010 in the North West of England. His keen interest and passion for the management of patients with head and neck cancer encouraged him to apply for the Advanced Head and Neck Surgical Oncology Training Fellowship through national selection by the UK Joint Committee for Higher Surgical Training.

Mr Alam widened his extensive skills by gaining further training in thyroid surgery under supervision of a well-known ENT surgeon, whilst taking an appointment as an honorary fellow in otolaryngology at Maidstone Hospital, Kent.
