"Professor Ellis continues to fine–tune and upgrade this classic textbook of clinical anatomy...This book is a classic."

British Journal of Surgery

From the Back Cover

Anatomy is a fundamental subject for first year medical students: where everything is and what it is called. It is this that is examined at the first end of the year. Study of anatomy is through picture books, skeletons and , decreasingly, the dissection of human cadavers. Professor Ellis′ successful revision text provides an understanding of anatomy in its clinical context. The structure of the book is regional and begins with surface markings, followed by detailed discussions of each organ or constituent part. These anatomical features are immediately followed by Clinical Features, the component which makes the book unique. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent text for people who need to revise anatomy that may have learned at medical school as a pure science, but now actually need to know the subject as a practical topic. It does not set out to be a reference text, but the new look MRCS vivas are pitched at exactly the same level as this book. It will probably not do for the MCQ's, but come the viva get it, read it and pass your anatomy section.

Format: Paperback
As a first year medical student, I was faced with the ld conundrum of which aatomy books to use and purchased martini at the start of the year. However, although an excellent book, I found that some minor details were just lacking and the clinical questions asked in anatomy sessions just weren't covered.

My anatomy demonstrator recommended this book and I took it out from the library. I was a litle skeptical at first due to the simplicity of the drawings but this is perhaps one of the major advantages of the book. Rather than show everything that is visible in a particular view, ellis shows just the bits which are relevant tot hat particular section of the book, so as not to clutter the diagram. The diagrams are almost schematic in appearance and are good for familiarising yourself with the basic shape and relations before observing them in real life.

The text is full prose, with few subheadings. This makes the book a little harder to skim through to get te info required, but at the same time encourages you to read a section, which i personally found beneficial. The sections are concise with lots of clinical relevance and the uncluttered layout is a pleasant change from most anatomy /A&P books.

All in all, I give this book four stars as I think it is an excellent anatomy resource but principally in addition to a more detailed book. Although not lacking as a standalone book, Ellis is somewhat less thorough than other books but offers a highly useful and informative style that is not found in many anatomy books.

Format: Paperback
I really struggle with anatomy and have used a number of books to try and help me shed light on this subject. This book is one of the better ones I have found. The line drawings are clear and unfussy and the text is well broken down into managable chunks. There are plenty of clinical examples included which make the anatomy more relevant and understandable. I am not sure this book contains the level of detail needed for MRCS candidates but it is certainly sufficient for medical students.

Format: Paperback
Ellis' Clinical Anatomy is not one of those really beautifully illustrated coffee table anatomy books. It is, however, a very useful book from which to learn the anatomy you need to know to get through a medical degree. It is concise with useful diagrams. It would be wise to supplement this with the use of a good anatomy atlas (or a lot of time in the dissection room) but this really is quite a useful way to learn anatomy. It is not overloaded with too much detail and it's small enough to take on the train with you (unlike most of those unweildy coffee table volumes). They've also tried to keep it clinically relevant. It's only got 4 stars from me because I have a soft spot for a beautiful drawing!

Format: Paperback
This book is a must for the MRCS OSCE. The authors are heavily involved in the MRCS syllabus, especially the anatomy sections. Many of the clinical questions and surface anatomy points came up in my exam. The book is easy to read and interesting as its clinical orientated. I found having another more detailed book like 'Grants' was useful to have with it in case you needed a little more detail or different images. All in all a great book for MRCS.......Buy it now!

There's the anatomy you get taught in the first year, then there's the anatomy you actually need to know. This book contains the anatomy you need to know. Concise text - even the diagrams are to the point, instead of the usual spaghetti of labels you see!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By busy mum on 21 Aug. 2009
Format: Paperback
I entered medical school thirty years ago, and amongst my treasured books was one given to me by a doctor linking the rather dry but essential subject of human anatomy with clinical medicine. My book, still on the shelf and used when I need a quick reminder about soemthing outside my normal practice, is long out of print now, but Harold Ellis's book nicley fits the bill of providing a bridge for pre-clinical students to 'get the point' of learning their anatomy. I bought it for a family friend who is just starting her medical training,and she has already enjoyed reading large chunks of it. I think this will keep its place on her bookshelf for years to come.

Format: Paperback
This is a great anatomy book with some fantastic drawings. The text is concise and at times Ellis' sense of humour shines through. It could do with a few more diagrams and avoiding statements like "the nerve runs above and before backwards" but really these details are minor. Another book (e.g. Drake et al.) still comes in handy for details but this really is a fantastic book.
There is a new edition out now.
