The best endocrine review available for the USMLE Step 1
This fourth edition of Endocrine Physiology provides comprehensive coverage of the fundamental concepts of hormone biological action. The content has been revised and edited to enhance clarity and understanding, and illustrations have been added and annotated to highlight the principal concepts in each chapter. In addition, the answers to the test questions at the end of the chapter have been expanded to include explanations for the correct answers. The concepts herein provide the basis by which first- and second-year medical students will better grasp the physiologic mechanisms involved in neuroendocrine regulation of organ function.
The information presented is also meant to serve as a reference for residents and fellows. The objectives listed at the beginning of each chapter follow those established and revised in 2012 by the American Physiological Society for each hormone system and are the topics tested in Step I of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). As with any discipline in science and medicine, our understanding of endocrine molecular physiology has changed and continues to evolve to encompass neural, immune, and metabolic regulation and interaction. The suggested readings have been updated to provide guidance for more in-depth understanding of the concepts presented. They are by no means all inclusive, but were found by the author to be of great help in putting the information together.
The fourth edition of Endocrine Physiology provides comprehensive coverage of the basic science and anatomy behind endocrine function. With its focus on must-know principles, Endocrine Physiolology is the best review available for the USMLE Step 1 and the perfect reference for residents and fellows.
- NEW! boxed clinical case scenarios enable students to apply information to real life scenarios
