Mathematical Concepts in Clinical Science
For entry-level clinical sciences, in which math concepts are emphasized.Especially created for students with a limited background in mathematics, this comprehensive text introduces basic mathematical concepts applicable to all entry-level clinical science curricula-medicine, physician assistant, nursing, pharmacy, and physiology, in an accessible style. The author does not merely present facts, but teaches the student step by step. Emphasis throughout is on understanding concepts, not memorizing numbers and formulas.
