Your ticket to acing Clinical Anatomy

Clinical anatomy is the study of human anatomy as it relates to clinical practice. Unlike a basic anatomy and physiology course designed to teach general anatomical knowledge, clinical anatomy focuses on specific structures and issues that people may encounter in a clinical setting.

Clinical Anatomy For Dummies presents a friendly, unintimidating overview of the material covered in a typical college-level Clinical Anatomy course. Clear definitions, concise explanations, and plenty of full-color illustrations make Clinical Anatomy For Dummies the most accessible book available to supplement your classroom texts.

  • Plain-English explanations make difficult concepts easy to grasp
  • Tracks to a typical college-level Clinical Anatomy course
  • Features a 16-page color insert

Whether you're a student or a practicing healthcare worker, Clinical Anatomy for Dummies makes this subject accessible and easy to grasp.
