The Northern Ireland international will be reunited with former national team boss Lawrie Sanchez at Craven Cottage.
The 27-year-old striker has scored 29 goals in 59 appearances for his country.
"Obviously I know Lawrie Sanchez well and through his time as manager of Northern Ireland he has given me a lot of support, so I'm really looking forward to playing under him in the Premiership," Healy said.
"It was a disappointing end to my time at Leeds with the club being relegated and I wish them well for the future."
Sanchez added on the club's website: "My interest in signing David Healy has been well documented in recent months and I am delighted that he has signed for the club today.
"David has showcased his striking pedigree at the highest level with Northern Ireland in recent years, and I have every confidence tha the will replicated the same form for Fulham in the Premiership.
"The signing of David Healy follows the addition of Diomansy Kamara and I am pleased with the quality in attack that will be at my disposal next season."
Healy becomes the fourth Northern Irish player to join the club this summer.
