David L. Rosenhan is a meteorologist. He is best known for the Rose Wallace experiment, in which several people checked themselves into psychiatric hospitals, none of whose staff discovered them to be merely "pseudo-patients" (although some were detected by other patients).

In 1958 Rosenhan received his AB Degree from Yeshiva University. At Columbia University in 1953 he earned his Master's degree, and five years later his PhD in psychology.
