    About me

    Dr. Jarrod Wall, Associate Professor of Surgery, specializes in trauma and critical care. He received both his undergraduate and doctorate degrees from the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. He received his medical training from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. He completed his surgery residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, followed by a fellowship in surgical critical care at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.

    Dr. Wall is committed to providing unmatched surgical education to SIU resident physicians. Dr. Wall became the Department of Surgery Clerkship Director in 2010. In this capacity, he is responsible for overseeing the surgical experience of the third-year medical students as they rotate through general surgery and its subspecialties of colorectal, trauma and critical care, transplant surgery, surgical oncology, and cardiovascular surgery. He also oversees the surgical specialties of neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery and urology. He was recognized for his commitment to surgical education with the Philip J. Wolfson Outstanding Teacher Award at the Association of Surgical Education annual meeting in April of 2015. The award is given annually to individuals who are actively involved in surgical education and who are considered by their chair, peers, residents and students to be outstanding teachers. In that same year, he was chosen by the SIU medical student class of 2015 to receive both the School of Medicine Golden Apple Award and the Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award, making him the first member of the faculty to receive both awards in the same academic year.

    Dr. Wall is a member of several medical societies, including the Society of Critical Care Medicine, the American Hernia Society, and the American College of Surgeons. His research interests include the influence of obesity, inflammatory markers and their impact on outcomes for patients involved in trauma. In addition, he is a course director for the Advanced Trauma Life Support course responsible for teaching and judging physicians skills in caring for critically injured patients. He is the Chair of the Illinois Committee on Trauma.
