Donald P. Lookingbill Lectureship

The Donald P. Lookingbill Lectureship

The Donald P. Lookingbill Lectureship sponsors an educational lecture to the faculty and residents by an Annual Visiting Professor of international prominence.

Donald P. Lookingbill, M.D. created the Division of Dermatology at the Hershey Medical Center, The Penn State University College of Medicine, in 1975.  Under his tutorage and nurturing, the division grew to become recognized within the medical center, the region, and nationally as an extremely strong clinical division, providing excellent patient care, clinical teaching, and research.  Under his nurturing guidance, the faculty and dermatology residents within the division excelled in their respective areas of interest.  His advice, insight, constructive criticism, and encouragement resulted in the initiation of successful careers in dermatology by medical students, dermatology residents, and junior faculty.

It is impossible to work with him and not learn some of his quiet, thoughtful, consideration for difficult patient problems and situations.  His counsel to his patients and colleagues was always invaluable.  He mentored not only by word but by active participation.
