An Introduction to Medical Teaching

Few faculty members in academic medical centers are formally prepared for their roles as teachers. This work is an introductory text designed to provide medical teachers with the core concepts of effective teaching practice and information about innovations for curriculum design, delivery and assessment. It offers brief, focused chapters with content that is assimilated easily by the reader. The topics are relevant to basic science and clinical teachers and the work does not presume readers possess prerequisite knowledge of education theory or instructional design. The authors emphasize the application of concepts to teaching practice. Topics include: Facilitating Student Learning; Teaching Large Groups; Teaching in Small Groups; Flipping the Classroom; Problem-Based Learning; Team-Based Learning; Teaching Clinical Skills; Teaching with Simulation; Teaching with Practicals and Labs; Teaching with Technological Tools; Teaching to Develop Scientific Engagement in Medical Students; Designing a Course; Establishing and Teaching Elective Courses; Designing Global Health Experiences; Assessing Student Performance; Documenting the Trajectory of Your Teaching and Teaching as Scholarship. This is a complete revision of the first edition of this work with new chapters and up to date information. Similar to the first edition, chapters were written by leaders in medical education and research who draw upon extensive professional experience and the literature on best practices in education. Although designed for teachers, the work reflects a learner-centered perspective and emphasizes outcomes for student learning. The book is accessible and visually interesting and the work contains information that is current, but not time-sensitive. Each chapter concludes with references, many include recommendations for additional reading, and the work includes an appendix with resources for medical education.

Human Gross Anatomy: An Outline Text

By (author): Robert J. Leonard

This text presents gross anatomy in an expanded outline format. Its conciseness and logical organization permit easy previewing of the subject matter before a lecture or laboratory as well as efficient learning and reviewing of the material before an examination. Notwithstanding its succinct style, the text’s coverage of gross anatomy is comprehensive and is written at a level of detail appropriate for the medical student.
The book begins with an introduction, setting forth basic principles and terminology that will serve the student throughout the remainder of the text. Overviews of the nervous, muscular, skeletal, and vascular systems are also included in the introduction. The main part of the text is organized in the following sequence: The Back; The Thorax; The Abdomen; The Perineum and Pelvis; The Head and Neck; The Upper Limb; and The Lower Limb. Clinical notes that highlight anatomy relevant to current medical practice appear throughout these chapters. Since each regional anatomy chapter is complete in itself, the order in which they are studied is optional.

Examination Questions and Answers in Basic Anatomy and Physiology: 2000 Multiple Choice Questions

By (author): Martin Caon

This book provides two thousand multiple choice questions on human anatomy and physiology, separated into 40 categories. The answer to each question is accompanied by an explanation. Each category has an introduction to set the scene for the questions to come. However not all possible information is provided within these Introductions, so an Anatomy and Physiology textbook is an indispensable aid to understanding the answers. The questions have been used in examinations for undergraduate introductory courses and as such reflect the focus of these particular courses and are pitched at the level to challenge students that are beginning their training in anatomy and physiology.

The questions and answer combinations are to be used both by teachers, to select questions for their next examinations, and by students, when studying for an upcoming test. Students enrolled in the courses for which these questions were written include nursing, midwifery, paramedic, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nutrition & dietetics, health sciences and students taking an anatomy and physiology course as an elective.

Kinematic MRI of the Joints: Functional Anatomy, Kinesiology, and Clinical Applications

Features: Used Book in Good Condition

Kinematic MRI refers to imaging a joint through a range of motion to examine the interactions between the soft tissue and osseous anatomy that comprise the joint. Kinematic MRI techniques were developed because various pathologic conditions are dependent on the specific position of the joint or in response to loading or stress. Importantly, static-view MRI examinations often miss abnormal findings because the joint is not assessed through a range of motion. Accordingly, the functional information obtained using kinematic MRI frequently serves to identify the underlying abnormality or to supplement the information acquired with standard MR imaging techniques.

Kinematic MRI of the Joints is the first textbook on this important, emerging clinical MRI application. For each joint, it presents pertinent functional anatomy, kinesiology, and clinical information; describes the kinematic MRI protocol and technique; explains the normal kinematics; and provides a thorough presentation of the pathokinematics. Multiple case examples illustrate the usefulness of kinematic MRI of the joints for diagnosis or elucidation of pathologic conditions.

Each section of this book is co-authored by an leading musculoskeletal radiologist orthopedic surgeon as well as by an academic-based physical therapist/biomechanist.

Colour Atlas of Human Anatomy – Abdomen

By (author): Ganananda Nanayakkara, Isurani Ilayperuma, Iroshani Kodikara

Colour Atlas of Human Anatomy – Abdomen is designed to provide an understanding of the human abdominal region for undergraduate and post graduate students in Medicine and Allied Health Sciences. It is a practical guide in the dissection theater to unfold the position and relations of the structures of the abdomen.
Despite many Anatomical Atlases currently available, there appeared to be a need for an Atlas which compliments the Cunnigham’s Manual of Practical Anatomy, which is widely accepted all over the world as a standard anatomy text. This Atlas was conceived with the intention of fulfilling that need.
Colour Atlas of Human Anatomy – Abdomen follows the Cunningham’s Manual of Practical Anatomy (Volume 2). It consists of sequential photographs taken at various stages of dissection of the abdominal region. Hence the photographs allow side by side comparison with anatomical structures encountered during the dissections. In this way, we hope to bridge the gap between description of the text book and what students see in the cadavers.
All photographs are completely labeled for the ease of student’s comprehension and identification of salient anatomical features on dissected specimens. Specimens are labeled enabling students to carry out self-testing of their knowledge.
Anatomy dissection is a contemplative manual activity. It took us a long time of hard work to accomplish this task. We sincerely believe that visually attractive labeled anatomical photographs and its unique blend with the Cunningham’s Manual of Practical Anatomy (Volume 2), will undoubtedly help students to gain a better understanding of the human abdominal region.
