Resident Physican


Hey Y’all! My name is Ashley Cainion. I am from Dothan, Alabama. I attended Tuskegee University where I obtained my B.S. in Biology. After completing my undergraduate degree, I attended Southern Illinois University where I earned my M.S. in Biological Sciences and completed a post baccalaureate program, MEDPREP. I decided to move back down south and attended the University of South Alabama College of Medicine (USACOM) for medical school.

I have a strong passion for primary care overall and specifically women’s health, maternal and child health, adolescent health, gender affirming care and the health of underrepresented minorities. I have conveyed this passion through outlets such as being involved in various organizations and participating in community service projects. I was honored to be very active with USACOM’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion. I am looking forward to showing younger generations that their dream of becoming a physician is possible while also helping to diversify medicine.

I believe that Family Medicine physicians are able to live the best of all worlds. There are so many aspects about Family Medicine that allow us to tailor our practices toward our passions and the needs of our patients. I chose UNC Family Medicine because I know I will receive training that will help me achieve my goals of doing exactly that.

In my free time, I enjoy bingeing tv shows (especially cooking shows), trying new restaurants, reading, crafting, baking, traveling, and catching up with my family and friends.
