The thoroughly revised, updated Second Edition of Medical Cell Biology is the only textbook that fully meets the content requirement of the cell biology portion of the new U.S./Canadian Curriculum in the Anatomical Sciences. It provides everything a medical student needs to practice modern medicine and perform well on Board exams. Each chapter opens with a new clinical case and concludes with the diagnosis and a discussion of the disease. National Board Part I type questions end each chapter, and answers are given at the end of the book. A computer disk with over 200 Board type questions, answers, and explanations is included.
An affordable textbook for medical, dental, and nursing students, presenting the information on the biology of the human cell that will be useful to them in clinical practice. Their only other alternatives are the brief, inadequate coverage within more general courses, or weighty tomes for graduate biologists. Well illustrated with color drawings. Annotation c.
