Initially, Jan Guy became involved in health care because of the encouragement she received from Dr. Theodore R. Brooks, her family physician. Following his advice, her first steps into the medical field were earning a Bachelor of Science in health science and becoming a licensed physician assistant at the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science in 1990. She followed those up with a master’s degree in forensic science from National University and a Ph.D. in public health through Rockville University, and continues to advance in her career through her current pursuit of a Ph.D. in public policy and administration from Walden University. As Dr. Guy draws upon her upbringing, faith in God, and parental support to maintain her success, she remains motivated in her endeavors because of her ability to help people and see improvements in their medical conditions.
Since her journey began, Dr. Guy has served in the occupational medicine arena for 22 years, with the past eight at U.S. HealthWorks Medical Group. She joined the urgent occupational medical care provider after being honorably discharged as a lieutenant commander of U.S. public health services for the U.S. Army, and immediately turned her talents to providing effective and efficient medical care. U.S. HealthWorks Medical Group has come to rely on Dr. Guy’s expertise in administrating care to patients with work-related injuries as she thrives as a physician assistant. Furthermore, she has recently taken on the role of deputy coroner.
As a testament to her achievements, Dr. Guy received a number of accolades, including a Bronze Star Medal from the U.S. Military, and a Commendation Award, the Korea Defense Service Medal, and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, all from the U.S. Army. She has also earned several awards from the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.
