Stevan Bruijns, Editor of the African Journal of Emergency Medicine, received training as an emergency physician both in Cape Town, South Africa and Plymouth, England and holds dual registration as a specialist in both countries. He completed his PhD whilst in Plymouth with a topic on trauma pathophysiology, involving vital signs. During this time he became the founding editor-in-chief of the African Journal of Emergency Medicine. It has been Stevan’s goal to improve the visibility & footprint of African emergency medicine research as a niche area, and he works tirelessly towards this goal. Currently employed through the University of Cape Town, Stevan works mainly in research, but spends a day a week at Khayelitsha Hospital on the notorious Cape Flats, dealing with a mixed variety of first world & African specific emergencies.
