Description

Since its first edition Human Anatomy has been praised for its clarity of presentation, outstanding visually oriented illustration program, and ability to help students understand anatomical structures. Past editions of Human Anatomy have won very prestigious awards, including the award for Textbook Excellence by the Text and Academic Authors Association and the award for Illustration Excellence by the Association of Medical Illustrators. The fourth edition continues this tradition of textbook excellence. Innovative pedagogical elements and a tightly integrated supplements package make this new edition an excellent choice for all anatomy courses.show more
