He completed his undergraduate education at the University of Stellenbosch, where he received recognition for his non-academic contributions and involvement in university activities. He served as the chairperson of the student council at the Tygerberg Campus and participated in various community and cultural endeavors.
Following his internship at Kimberley Hospital Complex, he successfully completed his post-graduate studies at Stellenbosch University with distinction.

He has a record of publishing both locally and internationally, including co-authoring a chapter on skull base lesions for a European handbook on head and neck radiology.

Upon his return in 2021, he assumed the role of Director at Morton & Partners.
Elias maintains a part-time affiliation with the University of Stellenbosch and continues to engage in research and postgraduate training to the extent possible. He has also contributed to the University of Stellenbosch GP refresher course, particularly in the area of basic chest radiography interpretation. As a result, other hospitals and institutions have invited him to teach clinicians a fundamental approach to interpreting chest radiographs.
In his leisure time, Elias enjoys traveling with his family, nurturing his passion for nature and animals, participating in marathons, and playing music.
