    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 vulnerable homeless and immigrant populations in the safety net system. Drawn to medicine to address health inequities and social injustices, her interests lie in the intersection between systems improvement, care transitions, substance use disorders, and language barriers.

    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 vulnerable populations, and drew her to UCSF for residency. After training, she spent two years at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center as a teaching hospitalist where she led a program to improve care transitions for patients with alcohol use disorder.

    She has been a hospitalist at ZSFG since 2017, where she serves as the physician lead for equitable care, co-chair of the care transitions task force, and will be launching an addiction medicine consult service to improve care for patients with substance use disorders.
