Jillyn Hebert graduated from the joint Physician Assistant/Public Health master’s program at George Washington University (Washington, DC) in August 2000. Her interest in Interventional Radiology began during a Vascular Surgery elective at Washington Adventist Hospital (Takoma Park, MD). In March 2001, she became a part of the CVDL team at Johns Hopkins.
She began her career in the medical field in 1990 as a phlebotomist, receiving on-the-job training at Carroll County General Hospital, while obtaining a Laboratory Technician associates degree from Villa Julie College. She worked as a clinical laboratory scientist at CCGH while continuing her education at the University of Maryland. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical and Research Technology in 1995. Despite a great work environment at Carroll County General Hospital, she felt the need to interact with patients and decided to apply to Physician Assistant programs in the Baltimore/Washington metropolitan area. In order to gain more patient care experience, she joined the Prince George’s Fire Department in 1996. She was accepted into the Physician Assistant/Public Health program at George Washington University in 1997.
