The gross anatomy lab is the only place where a student who is studying to be a physician, physician assistant, nurse, or physical therapist can actually see and learn how the organs, blood vessels, nerves, bones, joints, and muscles of the body are spatially related to each other. The gross anatomy lab experience, however, is too often primarily focused on the dissection and identification of organs, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels. There are not any gross lab dissectors or workbooks that associate the knowledge learned in gross lab with the skills applied in clinical practice. This workbook has been designed specifically to extend the gross anatomy lab experience into the clinical realm. Each chapter in this workbook focuses on one of the major body regions. In the first pages of each chapter, questions of various types (multiple choice, fill-in-the-blanks, and essay) are presented to identify the clinical anatomy you should know about the body region you are dissecting in gross lab. The questions focus on the anatomical basis of common injuries, conditions, and diseases and the surface anatomy knowledge that is applied during physical examination of patients. The answers to these questions, which are provided in the last pages of each chapter, are what your clinical instructors will expect you to understand and be able to apply when you are in your clinical rotations. This workbook will help you experience gross lab in its most meaningful sense: the opportunity to have the cadaver, the physical remains of your first patient, help teach you how to visualize in your mind and examine the internal organs, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels of all the living patients you will try to help in your professional life.This workbook has been designed specifically to extend the gross anatomy lab experience into the clinical realm.
