Overview

High-Yield™ Lung is the first in a series of High-Yield™ Systems books by a best-selling medical textbook author that cover the basic sciences of the medical school curriculum using a systems-based approach. This approach helps students integrate their first two years' course material and offers excellent preparation for USMLE Step 1 and clinical rotations.

Chapters cover each basic science—embryology, gross anatomy, radiology, histology, physiology, pathology, microbiology, and pharmacology—as it relates to the pulmonary system. The book is replete with radiographs, CT and MRI scans, and micrographs of normal tissue and pathologic conditions. Sections of the book are tabbed for easy reference.
