expand icon Biographical/Historical Note
Eli Robins was a psychiatrist who was a pioneer in establishing how mental disorders are researched and diagnosed today. After graduating from Harvard Medical School, Robins eventually came to Washington University in 1949 as a fellow and later an instructor in the Department of Neuropsychiatry. Robins was promoted to assistant professor in 1953, associate professor in 1956, and full professor in 1958. In 1963, he became the head of the department. Under his guidance, the department was a strong proponent of a scientifically based "medical model" approach to the field of psychiatry. Due to this being developed during a time when psychoanalysis dominated the field, Robins was a key figure in changing the direction of American psychiatry. Before stepping down in 1975, Robins became the Wallace and Lucille K. Renard Professor in Psychiatry.
