Suk Inner School is devoted to finding cures for the ailments which plague humanity and advancing man's medicinal knowledge. Widely considered superior to any other medical group, the Suk doctors are some of the best in fields ranging as far as Cybernetics.

The Suk School was founded by Dr. Mohandas Suk after the Battle of Corrin assembling the best, the most talented scientists, researchers and doctors. Suk lived through the final years of the Butlerian Jihad and fought against the Omnius Scourge and the Rossak Epidemic.

He believed that humanity should be prepared to face all the tragedies and had the idea that important victories are won in hospitals as much as on battlefields.


There were many reasons why Landsraad nobles put so much faith in Suk doctors. The first and foremost was that in their entire existence, no Suk doctor had ever betrayed a patient. The doctors could not be sold, bought, or rented out, although the Inner School might assign them to certain houses. The second reason was their exceptional knowledge of medical ailments.

Suk doctors were very easily identified. They almost always had a very long ponytail bound by a silver Suk ring signifying that they have completed Suk conditioning. But the most obvious mark of a Suk doctor was the black diamond on each member's forehead.

Later in the series, many Bene Gesserits were trained by Suk Schools to become doctors for the Sisterhood.
