A continual learner, General Pollock became a certified nurse anesthetist soon after her graduation from the University of Maryland. She has Master’s degrees in Business, Healthcare Administration, and National Security and Strategy, and an honorary doctorate from the University of Maryland. In addition to being the Chief, ANC, she has served as the Commander of the US Army Medical Command and the Acting Surgeon General (the first woman and first non-physician to have this role in any of the military services).
