New York/Stuttgart – Anatomy – An Essential Textbook, recently published by Thieme, is a review-style gross anatomy textbook designed to accompany Thieme’s award winning Atlas of Anatomy, Second Edition. It presents the clinical context students need in a concise high yield format and includes summary tables with essential facts and concepts, as well as 400 USMLE-style review questions with explanatory answers. More than 450 of the exquisite full-color illustrations from Atlas of Anatomy, Second Edition are also included.

“As curricula in the first two years of medical school have become increasingly multidisciplinary, the market for review-style textbooks has blossomed. Students are often presented with concepts in anatomy, physiology, histology, embryology, radiology, and even basic pathology and immunology in a single course … [and they] have even less time to devote to mastery of each subject by poring over the large single-subject textbooks, which were the standard learning tools of the past … Students now gravitate towards concise texts that provide clinical context and allow for rapid review and self-testing. Such concise texts, together with dissection guides and atlases, are the go-to resources for today’s anatomy students. Our challenge has been to provide adequate content in a format that fits this new learning style. Living up to that challenge has been our goal as we developed Anatomy – An Essential Textbook.” – From the Preface by Anne M. Gilroy

Anatomy – An Essential Textbook will be the core anatomy resource that students will read cover to cover and repeatedly consult as they go through their anatomy courses and prepare for the USMLE exam.
