A fully problem-based, integrated physiology text, this new resource uses clinical case studies to promote interactive learning and to build a foundation of knowledge for clinical practice. Each case presents an unknown clinical disorder and examines differential diagnoses, treatments, and outcomes as well as relevant physiologic principles for a well-rounded review. Approximately 150 illustrations (most in full color) reinforce learning of the written material, while a practice test of USMLE-style questionsâwith explanationsâaids in USMLE Steps 1 and 2 preparation.
1st and 2nd year medical students, primarily physiology; students prepping for the USMLE Step 1 and 2 exams
