Passion and Expertise


Family Medicine Residency Program

The Marian Regional Medical Center (Marian) Family Medicine Residency Program has recruited top physician faculty and skilled health care professionals and is currently recruiting prospective physician residents who all share one commonality: passion and expertise to be the best in their field.


There are many attributes that make the Marian Family Medicine Residency Program a highly desirable program for residency training - both our staff and residents strive for academic and operational excellence.

We encourage prospective physician residents and interested community members to browse our Marian Family Medicine Residency Program pages to learn more about our residency program, our stunning new hospital and our region - the breathtakingly beautiful Central Coast of California.


At Marian Regional Medical Center, we are developing and training the next generation of family physicians who will improve the health and well-being of all people of California’s Central Coast.


Our goal is to produce family physicians who upon graduation will be equipped to provide excellent, compassionate, evidence-based care in any setting or environment. Our learners will be prepared to adapt to the rapidly changing healthcare environment and help navigate patients through our complex healthcare systems. The education will focus on the fundamentals of clinical medicine while embracing innovation and ingenuity. All of this in an environment that emphasizes quality, safety, and personal wellness. In particular, we are focused on serving our underserved and under-represented community with an eye on identifying and recruiting a diverse resident workforce that aligns with our patient population. As such, we hope that our residents will stay and fulfill our local primary care needs and become pillars of the community, representing the essence of family medicine and the core values of Dignity Health.
