Resident Physician

Personal Statement

I’m Katarina Abadie (please call me Kat!) and I spent most of my childhood in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio, where I also attended undergrad at Case Western Reserve University. For medical school, I decided to seek some milder winters and attended Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston Salem, NC, where I fell in love with family medicine and life in the South. I was heavily involved with Wake Forest’s FMIG program and attended a multitude of events through the NCAFP, showing me North Carolina’s commitment to Family Medicine.

My family and I are originally from Serbia in Eastern Europe and moved to the United States when I was a young child. My passion for medicine stems from my science-loving chemical engineer parents and some amazing teachers I had along the way. My interests include pediatric health and obesity, women’s health, and geriatrics- making Family Medicine the perfect place for me to be!

In my free time, I love spending time with family and friends. My husband, Bryan, is also a resident at UNC and outside of work we enjoy exploring new recipes, binge-watching Netflix, cheering on the Tar Heels, and traveling to new places. I am grateful to be a part of the UNC Family Medicine family and continuing my training in this wonderful place!
