​“I want to provide the best evidence-based care I can give, but to do that it’s important to stay up to date and be active in research.​"

Provider Bio down arrow

Dr. Jennifer Roberts likes the excitement of trauma surgery and dealing with critically injured patients. Marshfield Clinic Health System was one of the few places that could offer a high enough volume of such cases without having to live in a big city.​​

​​“My absolute favorite things to do away from surgery are bow hunting, fishing and playing sports,” she said. Despite her love of the great outdoors, she believes trauma care in rural areas can actually be more challenging than in a city.

“You have a lot less penetrating and violent trauma,” she said, “but that doesn’t make trauma care any less complicated.” In addition to trauma surgery, she performs acute care surgery and surgical critical care.​​

​​Dr. Roberts earned her medical degree from the Chicago Medical School, Illinois. She completed her general surgery residency and earned a master’s degree in clinical and translational research at Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. She then completed a fellowship in surgical critical care at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. She was runner-up in a national trauma paper competition conducted by the American College of Surgeons, Committee on Trauma.

​​She plans to pursue research in the area of rural trauma systems.
