Clinical Applications of Human Anatomy: A Laboratory Guide
Clinical Applications of Human Anatomy: A Laboratory Guide is an exciting new manual specifically designed to provide students with a more practice oriented method for learning human gross anatomy. This engaging style allows students to bridge the all-important gap between the classroom where anatomy is taught and the clinic where anatomy is used.
Michael F. Nolan has assembled learning activities as well as self-assessment tasks as the primary method of teaching for the student. The activities will acquaint students with clinically relevant aspects of human structure in ways similar to those that will be encountered in clinical practice. The self-assessment questions are a great tool that will provide an objective measure of progress and success in learning the material.
The emphasis on human structure rather than on a particular skill or group of skills coupled with its unique format of being just text, allows Clinical Applications of Human Anatomy to be the perfect companion for traditional anatomy texts and courses. Better-educated students become better prepared health professionals.

"The text is well-organized and maintains a consistent format throughout. Students learning anatomy in the health fields should find the exercises a useful tool to enhance their understanding of applied human anatomy as they progress to clinical skills courses."
— David A. Krause, Clinical Anatomy
"Overall, I would highly recommend this laboratory guide to any physical therapist student or any health professional studying human anatomy."
— Timothy J. McMahon, MPT, OCS, Orthopaedic Practice
