Now in its 3rd edition, this completely revised medical textbook continues its focus on just the core information you need for your anatomy courses, presenting everything in an easy-to-read, visually appealing format that facilitates study.

Key Features
  • Obtain reliable, accessible coverage of everything you will learn in your contemporary anatomy classes with expert knowledge from a team of authors who share a wealth of diverse teaching and clinical experience.
  • Easily locate and remember specific structures. More than 1,000 innovative, original illustrations by renowned illustrators Richard Tibbitts and Paul Richardsoncapture anatomical features with unrivalled clarity.
  • Understand the practical applications of anatomical concepts through unique coverage of surface anatomy, correlative diagnostic images, and clinical case studies.
  • Expedite the review of basic concepts from each chapter with Conceptual Overviews.
New to This Edition
  • Stay current and engaged in your anatomy courses with many new "In the Clinic" boxes, which offer access toin-depth clinical discussions related to specific diseases or procedures.
  • Source your review material quickly and easily thanks to a list of additional relevant study aids at the beginning of each chapter.
  • Improve your comprehension of cranial nerves with help from a brand-new visual map summarizing cranial nerve distribution and function.
  • Access the entire contents online at Student Consult, where you can also take advantage of an online anatomy and embryology self-study course, medical clinical cases, physical therapy clinical cases, self-assessment questions, and more.
  • Further enhance your learning by pairing this textbook with its companion review products,Gray's Anatomy for Students Flashcards, 3rd Edition (ISBN: 978-1-4557-1078-2)and Gray's Atlas of Anatomy 2nd Edition (ISBN 978-1-4557-4802-0)!

    Comments about Gray's Anatomy for Students:

    I am a medical student and I will use this product a lot when I'm revising my anatomy.
    It is known to have really great pictures and I've seen that it has some clinical examples too.
    I feel like as my career progresses I will always need a good anatomy textbook to refer to and I'm happy with this textbook as my go-to book for this purpose!

    2015 BMA Medical Book Awards: Highly Commended in Basic and Clinical Sciences "I particularly like the diagrams, which are clearly labelled, not cluttered, and helpfully coloured...this textbook is great. It is well-tailored to students, providing the anatomy information that we need to know. It gets a big 'thumbs up'" - Medical Student, University of Oxford (review of previous edition)

    ".explains anatomy in a way that is easy to understand, but also puts the text in a clinical context along the way.The Interactive Surface Anatomy is very useful and well made - a great example of how Student Consult can provide teaching tools that simplifies complex subjects in a way no book can."" - Medical Student, University of Copenhagen(review of previous edition)"
