She subsequently completed her internal medicine residency at New York Presbyterian Hospital Weill-Cornell Medical Center and her gastroenterology fellowship at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. After completing her gastroenterology fellowship, she was invited to join the faculty there, where she was appointed as the Gerald and Ruth Crohn Dickler Faculty Scholar in Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Dr. Sauk subsequently accepted a faculty position at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and developed a specialized practice in IBD at the MGH Crohn’s and Colitis Center.

She also focuses on treating patients with microscopic colitis and celiac disease. Dr. Sauk’s research interests have centered around clinical outcomes in inflammatory bowel disease and the intestinal microbiome. As the translational interface for multiple microbiome projects, she has partnered with investigators from the Infectious Diseases Division at MGH, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard to further understand the significance of intestinal microbiome alterations in inflammatory and infectious gastrointestinal diseases.
