Marlon Clarke, M.D.

Hometown
Kingston, Jamaica

History
Received his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC.

Hobbies and interests
Enjoys exercising, especially weight lifting. He loves to play soccer and racquetball, but his passion is for cricket. Dr. Clarke has played soccer at club level and varsity level. He represented Jamaica for cricket on the under 19 team, and still plays in Charlotte, NC in the MACC Leagues. In his free time he enjoys listening to music as a way of relaxing after a stressful day. His greatest interest though is his love for people.

Why I Chose McLeod
I came to McLeod because I saw a great opportunity to get exposure to a variety of different pathologies. Most importantly I saw a willingness to teach in the attending, even while giving their residents autonomy to grow. The program is very strong for procedures and the commitment to training a diverse group of young physicians, in my opinion was the deciding factor. Being a minority it is very important for one to choose a residency program that treats everyone as equals, and that's what we have here at McLeod.
