Dr. Marina Martin graduated from UCLA School of Medicine in 2003, and from Stanford internal Medicine Residency in 2006. After serving as a chief resident from 2006-07, Dr. Martin began a 3 year fellowship in the Stanford Prevention Research Center. During that time, she became medical director of a Stanford student-run free clinic, Pacific Free Clinic, which provides preventive health services to low-income uninsured adults in the East San Jose area.

During her research fellowship years, Dr. Martin also volunteered in the Interdisiplinary Geriatric Medicine clinic at the Palo Alto VA Hospital, which kindled her interest in working with older adults and led her to pursue specialty training in Geriatric Medicine. In 2012 she joined the Geriatric Medicine faculty at Stanford as a primary care physician in the newly-formed Stanford Senior Care Clinic. In 2014, she became medical director of the clinic, and in 2015 became the first Section Chief of Stanford's new section of Geriatric Medciine in the School of Medicine. In this role, she oversees clinical, educational, and health services research programs that promote optimal, compassionate, personalized care of older adults, especially those with frailty, dementia, or very advanced age.

Dr. Martin's clinical practice currently consists of post-acute rehabilitation and long-term care at Webster House Health Center (nursing home) and transitional care at home after hospitalization at Stanford Hospital.
