David Albert Clark, MD, FAAP, Professor and Chairman of the Pediatrics Department at Albany Medical College, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in pediatrics.

Dr. Clark chose to pursue pediatrics because he wanted to work with children. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in biology from the State University of New York at Binghamton in 1969 and then received a Doctor of Medicine from the State University of New York in Syracuse in 1973. Upon completion of his degrees, Dr. Clark became a diplomate of the American Board of Pediatrics. He began his career as an assistant professor of pediatrics at the Health Science Center of the State University of New York in Syracuse from 1978 to 1984. For the next four years, he served as an associate professor of pediatrics for the New York Medical College/Westchester County Medical Center. In 1988, Dr. Clark began working with Louisiana State University. There, he excelled until 1998 as a professor of pediatrics and vice-chairman of pediatrics. Since leaving the university, he has demonstrated success as a professor and chairman of the pediatrics department at Albany Medical College.

Throughout Dr. Clark’s career, he has accomplished many feats. He is proud of his clinical productivity, as he has taken care of thousands of children across New York, North Carolina, and New Orleans. Moreover, he has educated hundreds of pediatric residents and about 75-80 fellows, all of whom have since become doctors, which is rewarding to see. Likewise, he has completed vast amounts of research in his field. Active in his civic endeavors, Dr. Clark runs an orphanage in India alongside his wife. Together, they care for 26 girls. Though they can not always be there physically, the couple is consistently supporting the girls, whether it be via phone call or mail. As a testament to his success, Dr. Clark has received the Stewart Gurman Award from the State University of New York in 1976, the Seale Harris Award from the Southern Medical Association in 1996, and the American Academy of Pediatric Special Achievement Award in 2007.
