Dr. Amy Nowacki teaches Biostatistics (MTH 108). She is an associate staff biostatistician at the Cleveland Clinic where she collaborates with Cleveland Clinic investigators to bring a quantitative perspective to health science questions. She is also an assistant professor of medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University where she teaches medical students basic clinical research skills to prepare them for a career as a physician investigator.

Nowacki's primary research focus is on the communication and learning of statistical concepts, particularly in harmonizing with the case-based, clinical learning orientation of health professions education. Mentoring and providing biostatistical collaboration to Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine student researchers is a critical complement to her classroom teaching. The majority of such work entails guiding students through the entire research process from research question development and study design to data analyses and reporting. A second educational research interest, which has emerged through collaborative work, involves characterizations of innovative dissemination pathways and information uptake by medical patients and the broader public.

Nowacki's research interests also include leveraging statistical consulting expertise to teach statistics to medical students, residents, fellows and staff at the Cleveland Clinic; improving statistics education for nonstatisticians in the health sciences as well as experimental and observational study design and modeling.
