    Collapse Overview
    Marlene Martin, MD, is an Assistant Clinical Professor at UCSF and a hospitalist at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. She is driven to improve care for immigrant and LatinX populations in the safety net. Drawn to medicine to address health inequities and social injustices, her interests lie in systems improvement with a focus on addiction medicine, and community engagement, care transitions.

    Marlene was born and raised in Los Angeles and is a first-generation college graduate. She attended college and medical school at Stanford and was a NIH Fogarty Scholar in Peru. Her bilingual and bicultural Mexican immigrant background influenced her to serve marginalized populations.

    At ZSFG she is the physician lead for equitable care, a member of the Health Equity Council, and co-chair of the care transitions task force. Within the School of Medicine, she is a coach for students in the UCSF San Joaquin Valley Program in Medical Education (PRIME).

    Marlene is board certified in addiction medicine and founded and directs the Addiction Care Team, a novel interprofessional consult service that delivers evidence-based care for hospitalized people with substance use disorders.
