This “streamlined” text provides detailed information about the salient topics covered in a traditional first year two course sequence in college Anatomy and Physiology without a lot of peripheral information. This allows students to focus on the primary concepts without getting lost in ancillary information that may or may not be relevant. This text should also serve as a good review for anyone wanting to brush up on the subject. Interested readers will include allied health students such as nursing, surgical technology, physical therapy, medical assistant, dental assistant, massage therapy, pre-medical and pre-chiropractic. It is presented in an etext format that allows a number of advantages over printed medium. These include the ability to search through the text by entering terms in the search window (eliminating the need for an index), the ability to enlarge diagrams, and the portability of an electronic file. There are also review questions at the end of each chapter with an answer key in the back of the text. Lastly there is a text webpage that includes learning plans, podcasts, powerpoints, links and videos to help students along. This material is licensed under the creative commons license.
