Preface of Gilroy Anatomy an Essential Textbook

Medical education continues to undergo innovative reform that challenges students, educators, and publishers. 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.

Despite the excitement that integrated courses generate, an unfortunate consequence is that students have even less time to devote to mastery of each subject by pouring over the large single-subject textbooks, which were the standard learning tools of the past.

While these books are often the most relied upon references for practitioners and educators, 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 PDF.

The introductory chapter provides clear explanations of anatomic terminology, concepts, and systems that will be especially useful for first-year students. The remainder of the book is organized into units by region (Back, Thorax, Abdomen, Pelvis/Perineum, Upper Limb, Lower Limb, and Head and Neck).

Each unit begins with an overview chapter that summarizes important regional concepts as well as the details of skeletal, vascular, and nervous system components of that region. Subsequent chapters focus on organ and functional anatomy, often by key subregions.

The book is generously populated with over 450 outstanding images and 95 tables (including many of the well-received muscle facts tables and schematics) from Thieme’s award-winning Atlas of Anatomy. In addition, over 165 clinical correlations are incorporated into the text. Each unit is followed by an extensive USMLE-style question set that tests basic knowledge of that region’s anatomy and its clinical application, a total of over 400 for the book.

We hope that this unique combination of regional and systemic approaches presented via prioritized bulleted explanations, supported by summary tables, carefully coordinated visuals, clinical correlations, and self-testing will appeal to students as they journey through the world of anatomy.

I am grateful to so many colleagues for their contributions and expertise in completing this project. Most importantly, my editor, Anne Vinnicombe has guided, encouraged, and supported me throughout the process, always knowing when to push hard and when to tread gently.

Marjorie S. Anderson, my developmental editor, suffered patiently through many versions of the text, as did editorial assistants Debra Zharnest and Renee Kestenbaum. Megan Conway helped in the layout and production of this volume. Their tireless efforts organized my thoughts into a publishable product.

Thank you to developmental editor Julie O’Meara, who did the research on the clinical boxes, and my humble and heartfelt thanks go to my valued colleagues Brian MacPherson (University of Kentucky College of Medicine), Larry Ross (University of Texas Medical School at Houston), and Carmen E. Rexach (Mount San Antonio College), who reviewed the manuscript and found and corrected my mistakes and inconsistencies.

I’m grateful to Frank Daly (the University of New England, College of Osteopathic Medicine), Krista Johansen (University of Massachusetts Medical School), Geoffrey Guttman (University of North Texas Health Center, Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine), and Michelle Lazarus (Pennslyvania

State College of Medicine) for their contributions to the extensive question set and to Cathrin Weinstein, who helped in the editing process. I offer special thanks to authors Michael Schuenke, Erik Schulte, and Udo Schumacher of the three-volume Thieme Atlas of Anatomy and illustrators Marcus Voll and Karl Wesker for their collaboration, the results of which enrich the pages of this book.

Best Reviews

Been using this book for 3 months now. I gotta say, it’s a powerful resource, but you must combine with other soucers. The best one I would recommend is using this book along Kapit’s. Great combo.

Really nice presentation of the information, i love the way the author made it easer to understand (in my case remember) some anatomy aspects. This is really good for students and for specialist who wants a nice review


Needed a desk side reference. Excellent illustrations and video content!
