Title: Pediatrician (Retired)

Location: Henderson, Nevada, United States

Hugh Lamson Moffet, MD, Retired Pediatrician, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in infectious diseases.

Dr. Moffet chose to become a pediatrician because he always liked children. He chose infectious diseases as his concentration because his teacher and mentor, Dr. Henry Cramblet was a virologist. Dr. Moffet wanted to learn how to become a virologist and ended up doing the same thing Dr. Cramblet did. He began his education at Harvard University where he earned an AB in 1953 and followed that up by earning an MD from Yale University in 1957. In the midst of earning his education, Dr. Moffet joined the United States Army in 1953 and continued to serve his country as a captain until 1968.

The highlight of Dr. Moffet’s career was being able to teach the medical student residents and other medical doctors. He began his career as an instructor for the Bowman Gray School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina from 1957 until 1960. From there, he became an assistant professor at Northwestern University in 1963 and became the head of the division of infectious diseases at the Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago that same year. Dr. Moffet moved up to associate professor at Northwestern University in 1968 and remained there until 1971, when he also ended his position as head of the division of infectious disease. He moved on to the University of Wisconsin-Madison as an associate professor and eventually a professor until 1998. As a testament to Dr. Moffet’s success, he has been included in multiple editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering and Who’s Who in the Midwest.
