    Collapse Overview
    Marlene Martin, MD, is an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at UCSF and a hospitalist at San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH). She is driven to improve care for individuals with substance use disorders, immigrants, and Latinx. Drawn to medicine to address health inequities and social injustices, her interests lie in systems improvement with a focus on addiction medicine, community engagement, and 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 SFGH she is the physician lead for equitable care, a member of the Health Equity Council, and former 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). As part of the UCSF Latinx Center of Excellence (LCOE), Marlene led the implementation of a promotorx based Latinx COVID-19 Enhanced Case Investigation and Contact Tracing effort.

    Marlene is board certified in addiction medicine and founded and directs the Addiction Care Team, an interprofessional consult service that provides compassionate care focused on harm reduction, treatment, and linkage to care for emergency department and hospitalized patients with unhealthy substance use.
