Dr. Zeller grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana and earned his undergraduate degree in Biology from Purdue University (Go Boilermakers!) He went on to graduate Alpha Omega Alpha from Indiana University School of Medicine in 2006. He completed his Family Medicine residency at Self Regional Healthcare, and then spent one year in rural practice in Indiana prior to beginning his academic career. He has taught at residency programs in South Bend, IN and Greenwood and Greenville, SC prior to moving to Seneca to start this program in 2017. His special interests include inpatient and outpatient procedures, health disparities, the opioid epidemic, improving the health of communities, and teaching the next generation of physicians. His scholarly output includes publications in The Journal of Family Practice, FP Essentials, Family Medicine, and The Journal of Rural Health, and he has lectured regionally and nationally about curriculum innovation and healthy organizational culture. He and his wife have four children and enjoy time with them on Lake Keowee or attending their school and sports activities. They catch as many Cubs games as they can, and have very fond memories of 2016. He has been a homebrewer since 2012 and grows his own hops, which likely makes him an official beer nerd.
