Anatomy is a fundamental subject for first year medical students: where everything is and what it is called. It is this that is examined at the first end of the year. Study of anatomy is through picture books, skeletons and , decreasingly, the dissection of human cadavers. Professor Ellis' successful revision text provides an understanding of anatomy in its clinical context. The structure of the book is regional and begins with surface markings, followed by detailed discussions of each organ or constituent part. These anatomical features are immediately followed by Clinical Features, the component which makes the book unique.

Clinical Anatomy is a classic. Written by one of the great UK teachers of Anatomy, previous editions of this book have been an invaluable resource for thousands of medical students and trainees throughout the world.
This short revision text provides an understanding of anatomy in its clinical context. Taking a regional approach, surface anatomy is explained and followed by detailed discussion of each organ or constituent part. Clinical features are included after each anatomical description. These emphasise the clinical significance of a structure and highlight how disease or injury affects that structure. Throughout the book simple, easily reproducible colour line drawings and radiographs are used to illustrate structures.
The clinical emphasis of the book makes this text an essential purchase for medical students and especially for surgical house officers preparing for the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeon’s Exam.About the Author:
