Ebrahim studied medicine at UCT after matriculating as the top candidate in South Africa, graduating in 1993 with first class honours, and garnering a host of class medals along the way, including the Genmin prize for the top medical student in South Africa.
After a one year M.O. stint in the United Kingdom, he returned to Cape Town to specialise in Radiology. He obtained his specialist qualification in 2001, collecting the Rhone-Polenc medal and the Protea Holdings Prize for the top qualifying radiologist in SA. He headed up the interventional service at Groote Schuur Hospital and, in conjunction with the neurosurgical department, launched the formalised Neuro-interventional Program.
He completed an internationally accredited MSc shortly after joining the Morton practice in late 2002. During his early years in the practice, he gained his specialist registration in the UK and also served as a radiological consultant to the South Africa Military Services expedition to Antarctica.
With a strong interest in IT systems and Networking, Ebrahim headed up the team that designed, installed and configured the first practice-wide WAN and PACS. Eb currently President of the Radiological Society of South Africa, vice chairman of the South African Society for Neurological Imaging, and is a registered member of the South African Neuro-Intervention Society. He is actively involved in advancing acute mechanical stroke intervention and is actively involved with the South African Angels Stroke Network.
Outside of Radiology, Eb’s interest in IT has allowed him to launch numerous non-radiology businesses, one of his enterprises reaching the finals of a national Small Business Accelerator competition. He is passionate about Mathematics and Physics; having won medals for these at university, he continues to dabble avidly.
He enjoys playing tennis and travelling with his family, exploring museums, old cities or attending tennis tournaments. A bit of a car enthusiast, he has also completed numerous advanced driving courses both locally and internationally, including driving the Yas Marina Formula 1 circuit in Abu Dhabi and the Nurburgring nordschleife.
