This thoroughly updated, user-friendly text teaches students about basic clinical anatomy and helps them prepare for the anatomy section of the USMLE. As a pedagogical tool to simplify the learning process, more tables have been added. Also new to this edition are: end of chapter questions that follow the National Board test format; a focus on anatomical areas that are commonly traumatized due to auto accidents, gunshot and knife wounds; and greater emphasis on pediatric anatomy. Embryological explanations about congenital defects also have been added. Chapters are organized by body region, from body surfaces to deep structures. Each chapter contains a clinical example, chapter outline, chapter objectives, clinical notes, problem-solving, and questions.
