Clinical Anatomy: Applied Anatomy for Students and Junior Doctors 13th Edition PDF Free Download
As a teacher of medical students and surgical trainees, I know that much of clinical examination and diagnosis depends on an adequate knowledge of anatomy. No matter how good the doctors are at communication skills and patient empathy, unless they know what lies beneath their examining fingers or under the bell of their stethoscopes, they will have great difficulty in the interpretation of clinical signs. Understanding the exquisite details of modern radiological imaging also requires a good knowledge of the structure of the human body. This was true over 50 years ago when I wrote the first edition of this book, and is perhaps even more so today, when anatomy in the medical student’s curriculum has been greatly reduced. Over these many years, during which time I have taught students and postgraduates in five medical schools, and examined them in eight countries and sixteen universities, my belief in the importance of an adequate knowledge of anatomy as an adjunct to clinical training has been strongly reinforced. In the preparation of the 12th edition and this edition, I have been fortunate indeed in having been able to recruit Professor Vishy Mahadevan, the Barbers’ Company Professor of Anatomy at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, as co-author. He is a renowned and revered teacher of surgical trainees as well as being a current examiner in the MRCS and in overseas medical schools. Together, in this new edition, we have carried out a careful revision and updating of the text and diagrams, as well as adding new figures and images. We hope that this book will continue to help our students and postgraduate trainees throughout the English-speaking world.
