Megan Schliep, PhD, CCC-SLP, MPH

Assistant Professor, Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders,
MGH Institute of Health Professions, Boston
LHS Scholar, Johns Hopkins Medicine, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PMR)

Dr. Megan Schliep is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders at MGH Institute of Health Professions in Boston, MA. She also holds a clinical appointment as a speech-language pathologist at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston. Her research focuses on post-stroke aphasia and explores the implementation of standardized assessment practices across the care continuum, as well as the development of clinical predictors to inform recovery patterns.


As a LeaRRn Scholar, Dr. Schliep will be working with Johns Hopkins Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) researchers, Dr. Stephen Wegener and Dr. Eva Keatley, on a Precision Rehabilitation initiative. The primary goal of this project is to identify methods for measuring cognition that provide rich individual level characterization of functioning that are also scalable for population-level research. Under the mentorship of Dr. Beth Skidmore from the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Schliep will be working with the research team to identify high information content metrics that can be gathered to personalize rehabilitation interventions. Specifically, she will be supporting the team in exploring measures to capture cognitive status in order to develop predictive models.
