Dr. O'Brien's Story
"I was the first in my family to go to college", says Dr. O'Brien. Dr. O'Brien began his higher education by earning a B.S. in Pharmacy from the University of Pittsburgh in 1982. He worked as a pediatric pharmacist for 5 years at Childrens Hospital of Pittsburgh and then entered Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia.
