Real life clinical cases for the basic sciences and USMLE Step 1
“This handy little text has everything you need to review gross anatomy…[It’s] perfect for first-years just starting anatomy, second-years preparing for the boards, and third- and fourth-years going over their anatomy for their surgery rotations.”–Kathleen M. Donahue, third year medical student, Midwestern University/Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine
“Learning on a cadaver helps you understand anatomy in 3-D; Case Files: Anatomy will help you understand that anatomy and how you’ll use it in real clinical practice.”–Brad Miller, Class of 2006, Weill Medical College of Cornell University
You need exposure to clinical cases in order to pass course exams and ace the USMLE Step 1–and this book provides exactly that. It presents 53 real-life clinical cases that illustrate essential concepts in gross anatomy. Each case includes an easy-to-understand discussion correlated to key basic science concepts, definitions of key terms, anatomy pearls, and USMLE-style review questions. With this interactive system you’ll learn instead of memorize.
- ۵۳ clinical cases, each with USMLE-style questions
- Clinical pearls highlight key concepts
- Primer on how to approach clinical problems and think like a doctor
- Proven learning system improves your shelf exam scores
**Audience** The audience is medical students who are taking gross anatomy and studying for USMLE Step 1. The book is meant to serve as a supplement to traditional books and atlases and solidify clinical relevance of anatomy.
**Features** The 49 cases are divided into regions. After the description of the clinical case, there are a series of open-ended questions. The questions are answered by explaining the anatomy behind the case with extensive tables and illustrations of the relevant anatomy. Following are, generally, three USMLE Step 1 style multiple choice questions with explanations and references for further reading. Useful features include the “Anatomical Pearls” of key anatomical points and the cross references of cases by diagnosis.
**Assessment** The book does a nice job with the clinical case approach. It covers many of the classic clinical cases that medical students are likely to encounter in their future practice. The bolding of key names and structures as well as the very complete index are also useful features. In the field of anatomy review books, this one is unusual, in that there are relatively few clinical cases, but each one includes an extensive explanation of both the normal and clinically relevant anatomy with lots of illustrations and tables. No other books on gross anatomy take this approach. Many medical students will find it very useful.
