Clinical Anatomy for Your Pocket

JAMA. 2009;301(17):1825-1831. doi:10.1001/jama.2009.592

Clinical Anatomy for Your Pocket serves the time-crunched student within a truncated medical curriculum. The text is classically organized into a regional approach, divided into thorax, abdomen, pelvis, back, limbs, and head and neck sections. Comprising 259 pages and with 50 full-color illustrations, the small (10.8 cm × 18.1 cm) text is intended for medical students but could be adapted for dental and allied health students. Clinical Anatomy for Your Pocket is concise yet complete. It is a fraction of the size and length of its contemporaries, which is no small accomplishment considering that most medical anatomy textbooks have well more than 3 times the number of pages and may well be 3 times larger. The advantage this text has over more conventional anatomy textbooks is that high-yield facts can be located efficiently without searching through pages of minutia.
