Designed for the one-semester anatomy and physiology program, Hole’s Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology presumes no previous science knowledge and supports core topics with clinical applications, making challenging concepts relevant to pupils pursuing careers in the allied health field. The ‘learn, practice, and access system’ is utilized throughout the etextbook. “Learning” Outcomes at the start of each chapter set the stage of what students will learn, “Practice” questions at the end of each major section help examine their recall on exactly what they just read, as well as “Assess” end of chapter resources assist students confirm their accurate recall of just what they just learned as well as practiced. The “Learn, practice, and assess” system is very effective in providing pupils with a strong understanding of the important concepts in anatomy and physiology.
- Incorporates student-friendly Learning Methods, Clinical View boxes, as well as progressive question sets that encourage university student to internalize and use what they have actually learned.
- Connect: An exceptionally dependable, simple-to-use homework and learning management solution that embeds learning science and award-winning adaptive tools to enhance scholar results.
- High- quality photos coupled with brilliantly rendered images assist students envision, comprehend, and appreciate the marvels of human anatomy.
About The Authors
David Shier has greater than 30 years of experience teaching anatomy and physiology, mainly to premedical, nursing, dental, and allied health pupils. He has successfully incorporated his extensive teaching expertise into another student-friendly revision of Hole’s Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology and Hole’s Human Anatomy and Physiology. His passion in physiology and teaching began with a job as a research aide at Harvard Medical School from 1976-1979 He finished his Ph D. at the University of Michigan in ’84, and served on the faculty of the Medical College of Ohio from 1985-1989. He began teaching at Washtenaw Community College in ’90. David has recent experience in on-line course delivery, including videotaping lectures for so-called “flipped” lecture rooms. He has also been in the relationship between pedagogy and assessment, and the use of tools typically connected with evaluation (e.g. laboratory quizzes) as pedagogical tools, commonly related to group activities.
Jackie Butler’s professional background consists of work at the University of Texas Health Science Center performing research concerning the genes of bilateral retinoblastoma. She later worked at Houston’s M. D. Anderson Hospital examining remission in leukemia patients. A well-liked teacher for more than 30 years at Grayson College, Jackie has taught microbiology and human anatomy and physiology for health science majors. Her experience as well as work with college students of various academic backgrounds have contributed considerably to another revision of Hole’s Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology and Hole’s Human Anatomy and Physiology Jackie Butler acquired her B.S. and M.S. degrees from Texas A&M University, specializing in microbiology, including courses in immunology and epidemiology.
Ricki Lewis has made an eclectic profession in communicating the excitement of genes.
