This latest edition is fully updated with new content and additional features, including new surface anatomy and updated diagnostic images, new "Bottom Line" summaries that reinforce important concepts, and new clinical "Blue" boxes.

Product Description


Doody's Review Service -- "This is the ideal book to accompany human cadaver dissections... The book has extensive clinically relevant information and is so well organized that it should provide support for practicing healthcare professionals throughout their career. This edition has an expanded introductory chapter on systemic anatomy, with significantly improved coverage of the autonomic nervous system, a complicated area that new students often have particular difficulty with. The use of clinical "Blue Boxes" has expanded with descriptions of pathology, injuries, and clinical procedures that are relevant to the anatomy being discussed. These blue boxes are one of the longtime highlights and strengths of the book which have been increased in number and strengthened with illustrations. Summaries called the "Bottom Line" have been added that at times are useful take home messages, though occasionally the sentences end up being lengthy and a bit run-on. Students will most likely find these useful when reviewing material prior to exams. The number of illustrations now rivals some anatomy atlases. Many of the illustrations will be very useful to both readers and teachers because they efficiently drive home key points or relationships that are clinically relevant. Some embryology has been added, which is very useful. With this fifth edition, Clinically Oriented Anatomy, the gold standard North American human anatomy text has risen substantially in value. The authors are to be congratulated on this superb anatomical text that is ideally suited to learning and teaching human anatomy for healthcare providers." Weighted Numerical Score: 98 - 5 Stars

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Helpful Textbook Jan. 3 2013
By DalVeg
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although I had an amazing Anatomy professor during my post-secondary studies, there were still aspects of the human body that were confusing and unclear to me. I consulted several Anatomy textbooks and this one was the best to help me clear up those confusing aspects. It is divided by area in the body (thorax, abdomen, etc) and features lots of clinician anecdotes too which are interesting. My favorite feature in the textbook is the presentation of the muscles. They highlight a certain group of muscles on the body (they are colored in a bight color on top of the body) and these images are accompanied by a chart that shows the muscles' insertion, origin, action, innervation, etc. These charts are super to compare and contrast the muscles. I even dug this textbook out in preparation for some board exams later on in my studies too. A great Anatomy reference book to have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Pre-medical Buy!!! Sept. 2 2003
I thought this book was amazing!! It was my first medical school textbook. I flipped through the pages, glassy-eyed, realizing that this was what I had been working for!
Unfortunately, 2 years later, I ahve still not had the time to do more than use it as a reference book! I am hoping to read the entire thing sometime before retirement! Don't get me wrong, it is a great book, and I highly recommend it for medical students. However, looking back, I wish I had bought it BEFORE I came to medical school. Having the time to read the entire book, and learn the material would have been an incredible asset! Premedical students often wonder what they could be doing to prepare themselves for medical school. Buying this book and reading it would be high on my recommendation list!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars just too clincal March 25 2004
By A Customer
In fact it's usefull, mainly for a clinical aproach of anatomy, based on surface anatomy and changes in structure originated by injuries. however when performing dissection, that just does not help, the descriptive anatomy, is just to slim, and does not really contributes to understand the three dimensional structure of the human body. However for a quick reference could be an option. Personally prefer the testut-jacob topographic anatomy

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, excellent reference Aug. 15 2003
By A Customer
This book is quite thorough for anatomy and although very wordy, I think it covers a lot of anatomical information that every med student should know. I used this book as a reference for learning the facts in my anatomy classes. I also found the following to be an excellent source:
Spinal Anatomy Study Guide: Key Review Questions and Answers
ISBN: 0971999600
The second book had similar type questions to my anatomy exams in med school. My advice is to get both books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its a very good book to start with July 26 2003
By A Customer
I found Moore's anatomy very useful at the start of my anatomy course. Its very clearly written and the illustratiosn are great as well as the tables and charts. Its very useful especially when you are starting to study a specific region or system. I must say though that it did become a little unspecific and general when i advanced through my course so i reccommend this book for beginners in the area of anatomy.

I thing this is the perfect book for those who don't want to spend hours readind descriptive anatomy from books like Rouviere or Latarjet. But if you are counting only on this book, you're in a big mistake, cause' sometimes there's no way you can imagine what's the book trying to say, about the lacation, the function, or anything, without an Atlas or something like that.
So you must at least study with this and a nice atlas (maybe Netter o Yokochi), so you can follow the lecture.
