Dr. Greene graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Penn State University and subsequently received his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry where his awards included The Walle J.H. Nauta Neurosciences Award, The Robert Joynt Prize in Clinical Neurology, and selection to Alpha Omega Alpha. After being selected Chief Resident of Neurology at Emory University and completing a movement disorders fellowship, he was appointed to his current position on the Emory faculty as Assistant Professor of Neurology in 2005. He transitioned his career from the basic science lab to the hospital in 2010 when he became the first director of the Emory Neurohospitalist Program.

His current research focus is on clinical and quality issues facing inpatient neurology as it enters a new era that includes dedicated neurohospitalist care. This includes studies pertaining to diagnostic accuracy, resident education, and competency. In addition, he is helping guide the nascent Neurohospitalist Society to provide a forum to discuss clinical care, education, and research in this new subspecialty of neurology.

He continues to see outpatients in the Emory Huntington’s Disease Society of America Center of Excellence.
