Dr. Magaña was born and raised in Salinas, California where he attended local public schools. After completing his undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley, he went on to attend the University of Washington School of Medicine where he completed his dual MD/MHA degree. Dr. Magaña recently finished his medical training in Internal Medicine at Duke University and returned home to join the medical team at Community Hospital of Monterey County as a Hospitalist. His role is to work within a multidisciplinary team of providers to care for hospitalized patients. Like his two sisters, who also returned home to work as medical providers for patients living in the Salinas Valley, Dr. Magaña felt it was important to return home and give back to his community. Dr. Magaña has won numerous awards during his training, both for academics and community service. Dr. Magaña is passionate about increasing the number of underrepresented minorities who matriculate onto a medical career and hopes to continue his work here in Monterey County.
