Product Description

About the Author

 

For Elaine N. Marieb, taking the student's perspective into account has always been an integral part of her teaching style. Dr. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught anatomy and physiology to physical education majors. She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College after receiving her Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

While teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice. To that end, while continuing to teach full time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts. It is this experience, along with stories from the field–including those of former students, now in health careers–that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her texts and laboratory manuals are known.

In her ongoing commitment to students and her realization of the challenges they face, Dr. Marieb has given generously to provide opportunities for students to further their education. She contributes to the New Directions, New Careers Program at Holyoke Community College by providing several full-tuition scholarships each year for women returning to college after a hiatus or who are attending college for the first time and would otherwise be unable to continue with their studies without financial support. She funds the E. N. Marieb Science Research Awards at Mount Holyoke College, which promotes research by undergraduate science majors, and generously contributed to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where she provided funding for reconstruction and instrumentation of a cutting-edge cytology research laboratory that bears her name.

In 1994, Dr. Marieb received the Benefactor Award from the National Council for Resource Development, American Association of Community Colleges, which recognizes her ongoing sponsorship of student scholarships, faculty teaching awards, and other academic contributions to Holyoke Community College. In May 2000, the science building at Holyoke Community College was named in her honor.

Additionally, while actively engaged as an author, Dr. Marieb serves as a consultant for the Benjamin Cummings Interactive Physiology¨ CD-ROM series, and is an active member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and Sigma Xi. Anatomy & Physiology, Second Edition is the latest expression of her commitment to student needs in their pursuit of the study of A&P.

 

Dr. Katja Hoehn is an instructor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Sciences at Mount Royal College in Calgary, Canada. Dr. Hoehn's first love is teaching. Her teaching excellence has been recognized by several awards during her 14 years at Mount Royal College. These include a PanCanadian Educational Technology Faculty Award (1999), a Teaching Excellence Award from the Student’s Association of Mount Royal College (2001), and the Mount Royal College Distinguished Faculty Teaching Award (2004).

 

Dr. Hoehn received her M.D. (with Distinction) from the University of Saskatchewan, and her Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Dalhousie University. In 1991, the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation presented her with the Max Forman (Jr.) Prize for excellence in medical research. During her Ph.D. and postdoctoral studies, she also pursued her passion for teaching by presenting guest lectures to first- and second-year medical students at Dalhousie University and at the University of Calgary

 

Dr. Hoehn has been a contributor to several books and has written numerous research papers in Neuroscience and Pharmacology. She oversaw the recent revision of the Interactive Physiology modules, and co-authored the newest module, The Immune System.

 

Dr. Hoehn is also actively involved in the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS). When not teaching, she likes to spend time outdoors with her husband and two boys, compete in triathlons, and play Irish flute.

I am a nurse, and absolutely love this book. It is not condescending in its approach, but makes a very complex subject fun, logical and easy to comprehend. I recommend it to any medical student or employee.

Excellent book for any student that is undertaking a medical degree, I am doing radiography and I only come to learn of this in second year. I would recommend that anyone doing a similar degree get this even in first year. It is quite high level but it gives you a good solid grounding of anatomical and physiological concepts. It's not something that you would want to read cover to cover, but it's a great reference when needing to find information on a particular system. It's all there in very concise and detailed sections, overall a brilliant and incredibly useful book.

Very good textbook, covering more than you'll need to know during you study of anatomy and physiology as part of a nursing degree. Could probably be useful for others studying health, biology and other related subjects. The CD for the computer is great, the online service that you get is also good and interactive. It is very in-depth and also has chapter summaries to help with revision. Will probably even last once you've finished your nursing study for reference.

Excellent book - it is my nursing Bioscience text book. The extra bound reference was also excellent with a lot of real photos for reference, however the DVD leaves a lot to be desired, overall though, a fantastic pack.

This is a good book for anatomy and physiology, there is a lot of writing giving good descriptions, not very colourful or full of pictures if you like that type of book, but very good for those looking for detailed information.

I use this book for reference material in a biomechanics course for engineers who don't know much about anatomy and physiology. It had excellent illustrations and images.

I'm always rather reluctant to buy text books, however this book was definitely worth the buy. It's explained brilliantly in a really easy to understand way with clear and useful diagrams. The disc and bones book also were great, I made much use of them all. I would definitely recommend to anyone learning the human anatomy and physiology, particularly those going from a levels to university level.
