  • Dr. Jansen joined the UAB Acute Care Surgery faculty in August 2017. He had previously been a consultant in general/trauma surgery and intensive care medicine in Aberdeen and London, UK.

    His undergraduate medical training took place in the United Kingdom, where he obtained his medical degree (M.B.B.S.), in 1997, and an intercalated Bachelor of Science degree in Anatomy, in 1994. His postgraduate training took place in Scotland, with trauma and critical care medicine fellowships in Johannesburg and Toronto. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and a Fellow of the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. Dr. Jansen served in the British Army, as a reservist, and was awarded a Queen’s Commendation for his service in Afghanistan.

    Dr. Jansen’s research interests include the organization and delivery of trauma care, and trauma resuscitation. He instigated the development of a national trauma system in Scotland, and has a keen interest in REBOA. He is the chief investigator of the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) funded UK-REBOA trial. He serves as the Division’s Director of Research.
