    As an academic hospitalist, Marlene is driven to improve care for vulnerable populations, with a focus on immigrant and Spanish-speaking patients. Her quality improvement work is centered in care transitions and alcohol use disorders.

    Marlene is a first generation college graduate and attended college and medical school at Stanford. She spent a year in Peru as a Fogarty Scholar and has worked in hospitals in Mexico, Spain, and Nepal. Her immigrant background and work abroad influenced her to serve vulnerable populations, and led her to UCSF for internal medicine residency. After residency, she spent two years at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center as a teaching hospitalist, and is now back at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, where she is the physician lead for equitable care, co-chair of the care transitions task force, and leading inpatient efforts to improve the care of patients with substance use disorders.
