Alumnus Publishes Text on Emergency Psychiatry
May 21, 2008
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. -- Scott Zeller '82 is co-editor of Emergency Psychiatry: Principle and Practice, published in April by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
The book, co-edited with Rachel Lipson Glick, Jon S. Berlin, and Avrim Fishkind, uses
clinical and evidence-based information to illustrate principles of emergency psychiatry
and the growing field of disaster psychiatry.
The subject is one with which Zeller has firsthand experience: He was one of the first
psychiatrists to join the Hurricane Katrina relief effort in 2005, as featured in
the Winter 2005 Illinois Wesleyan University Magazine.
A resident of Orinda, Calif., Zeller currently serves as medical director of the psychiatric
emergency service at Alameda County Medical Center in San Leandro, Calif.
After earning his degree in biology at Illinois Wesleyan University, Zeller was an
honors graduate of Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago and did his residency
training at the Langley Porter Institute of the University of California, San Francisco.
