Nicole Caceres, Clinical Research Coordinator at Stanford

August 27, 2021

I received my B.A. in psychology from Notre Dame de Namur University and wanted to gain more experience and further my education while still working. Choosing the MS program at Palo Alto University was one of the best decisions I could have made. This program has allowed me to keep learning while also being able to maintain a full-time job. It is convenient, challenging, and engaging.

The professors are exceptional and provided me with an in-depth education in psychology. With the experience and knowledge that this program has given me, I was able to get a job as a Clinical Research Coordinator Associate at Stanford University in the Department of Neurology. I currently administer neurocognitive tests to adults with mild to moderate cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.

The data collected from these participants are then shared with other researchers in the field of neurology. My education at PAU has given me the ability to pursue my passion for helping others and mental health.
