Summary

For two-semester courses in anatomy & physiology.

 

A streamlined option to equip students for success in A&P and beyond

Anatomy & Physiology, 7th Edition answers the demand for a leaner version of Elaine Marieb and Katja Hoehn’s best-selling Human Anatomy & Physiology while maintaining the trusted, accurate, and carefully-paced approach of the more comprehensive 11th Edition.  A total of 26 abridged chapters focus on core concepts and allow instructors to expand on broader topics such as pregnancy, development, and genetics outside of reading assignments from the text.  

 

The 7th Edition motivates and supports learners at every level, from novice to expert, equipping them with 21st century skills to succeed in A&P and beyond. Hallmark Focus Figures and an expanded number of summary tables and in-line figures help learners practice and develop visual literacy skills. A greater variety and range of self-assessment questions guide students in advancing from mastering A&P terminology to applying knowledge in clinical scenarios and performing the critical thinking and problem-solving skills required for entry to nursing, allied health, and exercise science programs.

 

Also available with Mastering A&P

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, Mastering personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.Mastering personalizes learning and improves results for each student. Built for, and directly tied to the text, Mastering A&P enables an extension of learning, allowing students a platform to practice, learn, and apply outside of the classroom.


Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; Mastering A&P does not come packaged with this content.

Author Biography

Elaine N. Marieb

After receiving her Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Elaine N. Marieb joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College. While teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice. To that end, while continuing to teach full time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts. It is this experience that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her publications are known.

 

Dr. Marieb has given generously to provide opportunities for students to further their education. She funds the E.N. Marieb Science Research Awards at Mount Holyoke College, which promotes research by undergraduate science majors, and has underwritten renovation of the biology labs in Clapp Laboratory at that college. Dr. Marieb also contributes to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where she provided funding for reconstruction and instrumentation of a cutting-edge cytology research laboratory. Recognizing the severe national shortage of nursing faculty, she underwrites the Nursing Scholars of the Future Grant Program at the university.

 

In 2012 and 2017, Dr. Marieb gave generous philanthropic support to Florida Gulf Coast University as a long-term investment in education, research, and training for healthcare and human services professionals in the local community.  In honor of her contributions, the university is now home to the Elaine Nicpon Marieb College of Health and Human Services.

 

Dr. Katja Hoehn is a professor in the Department of Biology at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Canada. Dr. Hoehn’s first love is teaching. Her teaching excellence has been recognized by several awards during her 24 years at Mount Royal University. These include a PanCanadian Educational Technology Faculty Award (1999), a Teaching Excellence Award from the Students’ Association of Mount Royal (2001), and the Mount Royal Distinguished Faculty Teaching Award (2004).

 

Dr. Hoehn received her M.D. (with Distinction) from the University of Saskatchewan, and her Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Dalhousie University. In 1991, the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation presented her with the Max Forman (Jr.) Prize for excellence in medical research. During her Ph.D. and postdoctoral studies, she also pursued her passion for teaching by presenting guest lectures to first- and second-year medical students at Dalhousie University and at the University of Calgary.

 

Dr. Hoehn has been a contributor to several books, written numerous research papers in Neuroscience and Pharmacology, and has co-authored the last four editions of this textbook. For many years, she has also reviewed and authored electronic media that accompanies Pearson anatomy and physiology books.  

 

Following Dr. Marieb’s example, Dr. Hoehn provides financial support for students in the form of a scholarship that she established in 2006 for nursing students at Mount Royal University.

 

Dr. Hoehn is also actively involved in the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and is a member of the American Association of Anatomists. When not teaching, she likes to spend time outdoors with her husband and two sons. She also enjoys competing in long-course triathlons and playing Irish flute down at the local pub.
