    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. Drawn to medicine to address health inequities and social injustices, her interests lie in systems improvement with a focus on care transitions and addiction medicine.

    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.

    At ZSFG she serves as the physician lead for equitable care and is co-chair of the care transitions task force. She is board certified in addiction medicine and is the director of the Addiction Care Team, a consultation service to improve care for patients with substance use disorders. Marlene is particularly interested in identifying people with risky alcohol, nicotine, and drug use and improving gaps in their care during and after hospitalization.
