Description
One of the challenges for allied health students is correlating the information introduced in basic science classes to the clinical problems they see in the field. A good clinician in allied health is knowledgeable in anatomy, physiology, pathology and other science fields. They are able to quickly apply this knowledge to the clinical setting for good patient care. However, both students and instructors know that applying knowledge gleaned from basic science classes to their own clinical practice is not always easy.

Using short vignettes, Clinical Correlates in Anatomy and Physiology illustrates clinical problems that align with the topics covered in a first year anatomy and physiology course. Students and instructors can use these vignettes to better understand the systems as they cover them in class. These illustrative examples pique student interest and serve as the basis for classroom discussion, as well as introduce the concepts of pathophysiology in the context of systems physiology. While designed for the allied health student, anyone with an interest in processes of health and disease will enjoy these short discussions illustrating clinical pathologies of systems physiology.
