Megan Pfeiffer graduated from the Mount in 2014 and is now the Clinical Research Coordinator II, at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. 

Megan works in the Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology on research to help understand and improve symptoms of chronic pain in juveniles, particularly those living with fibromyalgia. Her duties include recruiting participants for clinical studies from multiple pain clinics, conducting and interpreting statistical analyses, and writing reports on current findings.

Megan credits her success to the Mount’s research courses, practicum experiences, and opportunities to present at a professional conference. These experiences provided her with the research and professional skills that Children’s, like many companies, seek in a candidate.
