Sue Clark trained in medicine at Cambridge University and St Thomas’s Hospital Medical School in London. Sue spent two years in full time research at St Mark’s Hospital with an Imperial Cancer Research Fund Fellowship. She was based in the Polyposis Registry and worked on various clinical aspects of desmoid disease in familial adenomatous polyposis as well as studying the genetic changes within these rare tumours. The resulting MD thesis won the Raymond Horton-Smith Prize for the best thesis of the year at Cambridge University, and won the Leeds Castle Polyposis Group Young Investigator Award.

She completed her surgical training in the South West Thames Region, at St Mark’s Hospital and at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. She then spent three ears as a consultant at the Royal London Hospital before returning to St Mark’s, where she was previously Dean and Director of the Polyposis Registry.

She is now working part-time and no longer operating; her practice covers inherited colorectal cancer syndromes and complex second opinions, mainly related to ileoanal pouch surgery.
