The University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy Master of Science in Pharmacy Business Administration (MSPBA) recognizes student John Meehan, MSPBA Class of 2016, for his recent publication in Specialty Pharmacy Times. John’s article  titled, “Time-to-Fill: A Standardization Dilemma in Specialty Pharmacy”, discusses the complexity of the steps required, variability, and hurdles managed by Specialty Pharmacies to ultimately dispense a Specialty Pharmacy medication for patient care.

John Meehan earned his PharmD degree from Duquesne University in 2010. John worked in retail pharmacy in rural North Carolina before transitioning to a clinical pharmacist position at Chartwell PA in Pittsburgh, PA. John is currently enrolled in the Masters of Science in Pharmacy Business Administration (MSPBA) program at the University of Pittsburgh, a 12-month, executive-style graduate education program designed for working professionals striving to be tomorrow’s leaders in the business of medicines.
