Human Form, Human Function is the first essentials level text that seamlessly weaves together form (anatomy) with function (physiology), an approach that caters to how instructors teach and students learn. Authors Tom McConnell and Kerry Hull incorporate real-life case studies as the vehicle for learning how form and function are linked. Through careful organization, thoughtful presentation, and a conversational narrative, the authors have maintained a sharp focus on communication: between body organs and body systems, between artwork and student learning, between content and student comprehension. Each feature reinforces critical thinking and connects anatomy and physiology to the world of health care practice. This original text offers an exceptional student learning experience: an accessible and casual narrative style, dynamic artwork, and a complete suite of ancillaries help build a solid foundation and spark students' enthusiasm for learning the human body.
A companion website will include the full-text online, Podcasts, an online Dissection Atlas, animations, additional review questions, answers to some chapter questions, an online Instructor's Manual, and PowerPoint slides.
