Wright State University - Boonshoft School of Medicine
Hi future EM rockstars! My name is PJ Greene. I am a Midwest transplant. I was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH then ventured about 50 miles up the highway to University of Dayton for college. After college I really branched out and moved about 10 minutes down the road to Wright State University Boonshoft SOM for medical school. My interest in EM was initially peaked during my time as an EMT in college. From there, my journey to deciding that EM was the specialty for me is pretty run of the mill, so I will spare you the details. A little about me. My hobbies outside of medicine (which are the most important and what keep you sane) are golf, hiking, running, any intramural sport, grilling, brewery hopping, skiing. One of my goals during residency is to play in the Pro-Am at the Waste Management Golf Tournament here in Scottsdale, wish me luck. I know I need to start thinking of some more realistic goals, but hey one can dream right? I have one brother. We were lucky enough to be in the same class at the same medical school, no we aren’t twins. People say we don’t even look alike because he is so handsome, funny, and cool while I’m the opposite of those things. Brutal I know. He is also a PGY-1 at Oklahoma University in ENT. Fortunately thanks to the alphabet I was the first Dr. Greene in the family, trust me I won’t let him hear the end of that! Obviously, our application cycle was different with covid, but after my interview with Copa I knew this was the place I wanted to train. The people are phenomenal, the sense of family is unparalleled, and the training is second to none. You know a program is special when you can get all of that from a virtual interview. I was a little hesitant about moving out West considering I had spent my entire life in the Cincinnati/Dayton area. I was fortunate enough (after I was vaccinated of course) to travel down to Phoenix and visit. The residents welcomed me with open arms, happily answered the million questions I had, and provided me with truthful and helpful thoughts/opinions on the program. This residency is made up of the most down to earth, hard-working, and remarkable people. I couldn’t be happier to be able to say I am part of the ‘Copa fam!!! Thanks for checking us out, congrats on finding the best EM residency out there!
