New York/Stuttgart - There are 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body. The human body is an extremely complicated machine, which medical students must learn through the study of anatomy. First-year medical students are challenged with absorbing a wide array of anatomical facts and figures along with the specific names of joints, ligaments, nerves, veins, and thousands of other structures. Medical school is a full-time job and for most students gross anatomy is their most difficult course. By primarily focusing on key structures, Thieme's Anatomy Flash Cards, based on the popular Atlas of Anatomy, help students successfully maximize their limited moments while studying the human body.
"This handy set of flash cards is a valuable study tool that efficiently helps students make the best use of their time. Using the amazing illustrations from Atlas of Anatomy, the cards can be used for studying, memorizing, and reviewing the most important concepts in human anatomy," states Cathrin Weinstein, MD, Editorial Director, Educational Products.
More than 350 full-color cards are presented in an attractive, compact box. Every image is numbered and easily cross-referenced with the original atlas. Each hole-punched card smoothly slides onto the key ring included in the package, making learning on-the-go even more convenient.
Color-coded cards are organized by body region (head, thorax, etc.). Clearly labeled headings are easy-to-read from a comfortable distance. Great care has been taken in labeling the images to focus attention on key structures. Concise text on the back of the cards, including clinical applications, comments, and answers to questions on the front are all relevant to medical practice.
