The major portion of this book is devoted to discussions of anatomy, physiology and some of the pathologic processes of the various systems of the body. The discussion follows the classification of the Standard Nomenclature of Disease. The remainder treats of such subjects as vitamins, anesthesia, medical prefixes and suffixes, drugs and abbreviations. There is a glossary. The volume is designed for the medical record librarian. The teaching schedule as outlined seems to be a worthy introduction to the medical sciences and to hospital orientation. More comprehensive sources of information should be included for such a course, however.
