Medical Students

When you join a Dignity Health residency program, you become a member of one of the largest hospital systems in the nation and the largest not-for-profit acute care provider in California.

Marian Regional Medical Center (Marian) offers audition rotation and sub-intern opportunities for 4th year medical students interested in Family Medicine and Obstetrics/Gynecology. We accept applications from current medical students whose school holds an affiliation agreement with Marian. Check with your school administration to confirm whether your school holds an agreement. We can also work with schools to obtain an AAMC Uniform agreement which can be processed quickly. Please note that Marian does not offer observerships or externships. 

Located along the central coast of California, Marian also provides free meals from our hospital cafeteria.

Applications for both Residency Programs, Family Medicine and Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN), auditions/sub-interns for the 2024-2025 academic year will be accepted January 2024 through April 2024* at which time we will close for review and final selections made by mid-May.
