About our speaker:


Mitchell Clark, MD, MPH is assistant professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at Yale University School of Medicine. After finishing residency at Yale New Haven Health, he completed his fellowship training at the internationally renowned Princess Margaret Cancer Center at the University of Toronto where he gained clinical and surgical expertise in all aspects of gynecologic cancer care. He also engaged in a rigorous research program focusing on furthering our understanding of the role of surgery in high-risk ovarian cancer. During his fellowship, he completed a Master's of Public Health and continues to actively research cervical cancer prevention at a population level using healthcare administrative databases. He has received numerous National and International awards for his research, teaching and surgical skills including the Society of Gynecologic Oncology of Canada (GOC) Research Award, Award of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (AAGL) and Yale School of Medicine Teaching Award.

Dr. Clark grew up in a small, rural community, where he began thinking about becoming a doctor after a close family member died from ovarian cancer. “I saw the lack of resources and advanced treatment options, and limitations in the system,” he says. “I was inspired to pursue a specialty where I could advocate for women to receive the highest quality of care close to home.”

Since then he’s seen improvements in both treatments and survival rates for women with gynecologic cancers. Surgery has evolved to the point where he can usually offer a minimally invasive approach that not only treats cancer, but also allows patients to return to their normal routines “faster than ever,” he says. “Being at Yale allows me to offer comprehensive cancer care that encompasses a multidisciplinary approach spanning from early detection to survivorship.”
