The human body masterfully explained for medical students...
- Frameworks for learning organize the information and speed up learning
- Innovative illustrations show overviews, details, and the body in motion.
- Embryological development helps clarify normal function and clinical disorders
- Shaded text shows clinical discussions
This concise, well-illustrated textbook of gross anatomy emphasizes basic principles, functional aspects, and the clinical significance of anatomy. It follows a standard regional organization and covers the essential anatomy a medical student needs to know for class and for the USMLE. The illustrations consist of straightforward, detailed two-color diagrams that focus on functional anatomy. Clinical correlations throughout make anatomy concepts relevant to the practice of medicine. The easy-to-read style and student-friendly design elements aid the learning process by relating details to larger concepts.
What sets this gross anatomy textbook apart from all the rest?
- No dry lists! The guiding principle of this text is to provide a logical framework for every topic that helps organize the information and fits structural details within a context. Bullets, tables, and shaded clinical text provide an efficient way for the student to learn this complex subject.
- Illustrations clearly display spatial and functional relationships of structures as well as detailed views. No other book presently available combines a logical explanation of anatomical concepts with illustrations from an artist with extensive experience illustrating clinical anatomy for surgeons.
- Embryonic development becomes a framework for understanding both normal function and clinical disorders. Knowledge of the developmental outcomes of genetic information-the effects of the human genome-will play an increasingly important clinical role in the future both for diagnostic purposes and effective healthcare.
