Medical Physiology, 3rd ed.
by Boron & Boulpaep
For a comprehensive understanding of human physiology — from molecules to systems —turn to the latest edition of Medical Physiology. This updated textbook is known for its unparalleled depth of information, equipping students with a solid foundation for a future in medicine and healthcare, and providing clinical and research professionals with a reliable go-to reference. Complex concepts are presented in a clear, concise, and logically organized format to further facilitate understanding and retention.
“Clearly links the molecular and cellular biological foundations of physiology to organ-system physiology, as well as its aberrations that become disease. Designed to show ‘expertise of a multi-author book with the consistency of a single pen’ the editors sought Yale professors of physiology and then recast their manuscripts into uniform style to become a reliable resource for medical students. The excellent color illustrations can reduce the need for additional hand-outs.”
