Summary

This book is designed for one-semester or one-quarter introductory anatomy courses that serve students in prenursing, allied health, physical education and athletic training, premedical, prephysical therapy, radiological technology, physician assistant training, predentistry, and other fields. We present the basic concepts of anatomy--gross, microscopic, developmental, and clinical--in a manner that is clearly written, effectively organized, up-to-date, and well-illustrated. We realize that anatomy involves gargantuan amounts of factual material, and we have tried to make this material as logical and accessible as possible. To this end, we present anatomy as a 'story' that can be explained and understood--convincing the students that the structure of the body makes sense.
