Dr Deborah Braham attended medical school at Southampton University with an intercalated BSc with first class honours at University College London. Her postgraduate training included a number of years of general medicine and becoming a member of the Royal College of Physicians by examination. This was followed by anaesthetic training at major London teaching hospitals and district general hospitals including University College London Hospitals (UCLH), the Royal Free Hospital, Harefield Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. She also undertook fellowship posts in cardiothoracic anaesthesia and intensive care units (ICU) at Harefield Hospital, liver transplantation at the Royal Free and obstetric anaesthesia at UCLH. Her training in critical care medicine took place in a variety of ICUs and included general ICU and cardiothoracic ICU, and she gained a Fellowship of the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine.
