Health professions’ curricula around the world are continually evolving: New discoveries, techniques, applications, and content areas compete for increasingly limited time with basic science topics.
It is in this context that the foundations established in the basic sciences become increasingly important and relevant for absorbing and applying our ever-expanding knowledge of the human body. As a result of the progressively more crowded curricular landscape, students and instructors are finding new ways to maximize precious contact, preparation, and study time through more efficient, highyield presentation and study methods.
Pocket Histology, as part of Lippincott’s Pocket Series for the anatomical sciences, is designed to serve the time-crunched student. The presentation of histology in a table format featuring labeled images efficiently streamlines study and exam preparation for the highly visual and content-rich subject. This pocket-size, quick-reference book of histology pearls is portable, practical, and necessary; even at this small size, nothing is omitted and a large number of clinically significant facts, mnemonics, and easy-to-learn concepts are used to complement the tables and inform the reader.
I am confident that Pocket Histology, along with other books in the anatomical science Pocket Series, will greatly benefit all students attempting to learn clinically relevant foundational concepts in a variety of settings, including all graduate and professional health science programs.
