Suk Doctors or graduates of the Suk School were the preeminent physicians of the Known Universe. They were highly valued for their advanced knowledge and for the mental conditioning which supposedly prevented any betrayal of clients and any chance of their being used as assassins. Only ever mentioned as being employed by wealthy families and organizations, it is safe to assume that their services came at a high price.
The original books use a word also spelled suk as meaning "marketplace," offering one possible explanation for the doctors' name which is supported by their almost mercenary nature. However, this connection is never made explicit.
