Resident Physician


Hi! My name is Rashieda Pugh. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. I attended Brandeis University in Waltham, MA. During my undergraduate education I had the opportunity to study Human Anatomy in Queensland, Australia. Fun Fact, I was able to scuba dive the great barrier reef with no prior diving experience. After completing my undergraduate degree in Biology, I completed a two-year gap year program called MedServe in Durham, NC. During this time, I was able to work as a community outreach worker and medical scribe at a federally qualified health center. After completing this program, I attended medical school at Brody School of Medicine in Greenville, NC.

As a primary care provider, I hope to serve marginalized communities and bridge the gap between health care and marginalized groups. I have a strong passion for women’s health, maternal and child health, adolescent health, and gender affirming care in underserved communities. My future goal includes maintaining a leadership role at a federally qualified health center. As a Family Medicine Physician, I have the joy of caring for all walks of life. It is truly a rewarding feeling being able to maintain rapport with families through a continuity care approach.

I chose UNC Family Medicine because this community promotes leadership in a nurturing and safe environment. No idea seems too big or small within this community. This program is truly a family away from home. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my co-residents and trying new recipes.
