Summary

This widely read classic is an excellent primer on normal anatomy and physiology, basic microbiology, chemistry, and an introduction to the human disease process. New to this edition is a beautifully revised design and art program with new illustrations that include anatomical line drawings and clinical photos and photomicrographs. New content includes "Word Derivations" sections that promote recognition of scientific terms, "Health Professions" boxes that provide information on the various health careers, and new types of end-of chapter questions. A Blackboard online course student access code and a back-of-book student CD-ROM with exercises are included.
