Pamela A. Geller, PhD, completed a BA in Art and Biology and BS in Psychology at Newcomb College of Tulane University. She earned her MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology from Kent State University and completed a NIH postdoctoral fellowship in Psychiatric Epidemiology at the Joseph L. Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University. In addition to the Director of the Drexel University Student Counseling Center on the Center City Hahnemann Campus, Professor Geller is a tenured Associate Professor of Psychology in COAS, and Research Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology in DUCOM.

Professor Geller’s research interests involve the association between stressful life events and mental and physical health outcomes. Her work has focused largely on women’s health–particularly in the area of reproductive health (e.g., mental health consequences of miscarriage), and has been published in peer-reviewed journals and other venues, as well as presented both nationally and internationally. She is an editor of the Health Psychology volume of Wiley’s Handbook of Psychology (second edition forthcoming), and an editor of the new book, Women’s Health Psychology, also to be published by Wiley. Geller, along with her DUCOM colleagues, created an interactive, web-based curriculum to educate healthcare providers about pregnancy loss (Available from webcampus.drexelmed.edu/interactive/pregloss/), which received the 2010 APGO Electronic Educational Resource Award from the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics.
