Professor Clark is a Life Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for contributions to modeling in electrophysiology and cardiopulmonary systems. Cited as one of the leaders in bioengineering in the Houston area, he has served as the president of the international IEEE Society for Engineering in Medicine and Biology (EMBS) and has held several offices in that Society. He is also a Founding Fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) and has served on the Governing Board of that Society. In 1993, he was inducted as a Founding Fellow, in the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) in a ceremony held at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC. Early in his career, he spent a sabbatical year as an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Fellow at the University of Karlsruhe, Karlsruhe, Germany. In 2009, Clark received the IEEE/Engineering in Medicine and Biology Service Award, "for outstanding service and contributions to the EMB Society and a meritorious career in biomedical engineering education."
