Meet the Faculty: Matthew Jensen, MD
Name one thing on your bucket list.
Visit Australia – partially inspired by Dr. Majersik.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a doctor. I was inspired by the immune system as a young child dealing with a common GI bug and I continue to be amazed by the human body.
What is the best concert you’ve ever attended?
Honestly, I have not attended very many. But my all-time favorite and one that I would recommend is BYU Homecoming Spectacular. I have been a few times. The first time Ben Rector was part of the concert, which made it even better. It is amazing to see the broad talent of college students and the fun dancing, singing, and other performances that are part of this event—very entertaining!
What is your favorite thing about your career?
I appreciate the feeling that I am trying to help the world and thinking/hoping that I am a net positive. I love getting to push my brain to try and solve complex problems.
