The Basics of Anatomy & Physiology are prized for their accurate and flawless illustrations, time-saving navigation and study aids, and the inclusion of clinical content designed specifically for undergraduate and graduate students of anatomy and physiology and with little background in science. New career paths that are based on interviews with people who said they are working in key healthcare professions bring students into the workplace of healthcare professionals with the goal of informing and motivating those about their own future healthcare professions. This book is for students attending a one-semester A & P course.
