Douglas McGee, DO, Chief Academic Officer, can’t recall a time when the sciences and math didn’t help determine the course of his life and career.
It started in Boy Scouts, with merit badges for first aid. It moved along to certification as an emergency medical technician (EMT) in high school and volunteer service with the local fire company. In junior high school and high school, he thrived on an academic diet of math, science, biology and physics. In college, he majored in chemistry, with a focus on organic chemistry.
The thread that ran through all of those intellectual and personal pursuits was an insatiable desire to analyze often stubborn problems and solve them.
Dr. McGee went on to the field of medicine, specializing in emergency medicine, where he is widely acknowledged for his expertise, leadership and scholarship. In his role as chief academic officer for Einstein Healthcare Network, he is principally responsible for all graduate, undergraduate and continuing medical education programs.
