This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It has been written to encompass the basic anatomy, physiology and pathology required by the syllabus of the UK Royal Colleges and the Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Project. For this Second Edition many of the chapters have been updated, especially the chapters on immunology, basic microbiology, the endocrine and locomotor systems and the breast. An attempt has been made throughout to indicate the clinical relevance of the facts and the reason for learning them. There are several new contributors to the author team, all of whom are experts in their field and many of them are, or have been, experienced examiners at the various UK Royal Colleges.
Thoroughly revised to take account of latest changes in basic surgical training, especially the chapters on immunology, basic microbiology, the endocrine and locomotor systems and the breast
"Perfect for quick refreshing or cover to cover swotting....A true gem" David Miller, 3rd year Medical Student, Glasgow University
''Applied Basic Science is an excellent textbook. The book is concise and clearly written, but at the same time gives a good depth of information. It is divided into two parts: General Pathology and Microbiology and Specific Systems. Noted experts in their fields contribute chapters within these parts. The use of diagrams and tables helps to highlight the most relevant points. Specific boxes on issues in immunodeficiency and evidence based medicine are particularly useful.'' Philip Xiu
