|Andrea McKee received her Bachelor of Arts degree in biology in 1992 from the University of Pennsylvania with honors. She graduated from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1996. During college and medical school, she participated in laboratory and clinical research prior to continuing with her clinical training.
Dr. McKee stayed in New York City for her internship in internal medicine at Lenox Hill Hospital. She continued her training in radiation oncology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, where she was named Chief Resident for 2000-2001.
During residency, Dr. McKee researched clinical outcomes in patients with tumors of the prostate, uterus, cervix, and musculoskeletal system. She developed expertise in intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery. After finishing her training at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Dr. McKee joined Radiation Oncology Associates in 2001.
Dr. McKee helped establish an HDR brachytherapy program in southern New Hampshire in 2004. With a team of neurosurgeons, oncologists, physicists, radiation therapists and oncology nurses, she developed a stereotactic radiotherapy program at the Elliot Hospital where she served as the medical director and co-director of the Elliot Radiosurgery Center. She now serves as the Chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Lahey Clinic in Burlington and Peabody.
"I became a radiation oncologist in order to practice medicine in an area that challenged me both emotionally and intellectually. The technological and therapeutic advances in radiation and medical oncology seen over the past few years have led to impressive and meaningful improvements in overall survival and quality of life for our patients. It is an exciting time for those of us who share in the privilege of caring for patients with cancer.
