Faculty Profile: David Hull, MD

David Hull, MD

Professor Emeritus of Ophthalmology 



Dr. David Hull joined our department in June of 1974 after being recruited by Dr. Malcolm Luxenberg. He was full time in the Department of Ophthalmology until retiring in the year 2000. During his tenure he was very actively involved in both the clinical and basic science arenas. In the basic science venue he collaborated extensively with the late Dr. Keith Green. Clinically, many residents were trained on his service. Since retirement he continues to be involved in the department. His primary involvement in the department now is aimed at the instruction of residents in matters of cornea and external disease. He is well respected and often will take the residents back to the Department library to review slides and look at the old texts, e.g. Duke Elder's classic work showing how these texts, while not readily used currently still are a great resource for ophthalmology. He continues to be involved in the resident applicant interview process. He was well loved by his patients too who for many years after his departure was still inquired after.
