- Anatomy and Physiology: An Integrative Approach (3rd Edition) – PDF – eBook:
Dr. Michael P. McKinley obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of California, and both MS and PhD degrees from Arizona State University. In 1978, he accepted a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) Medical School in the laboratory of Dr. Stanley Prusiner, the place he labored for 12 years investigating prions and prion-diseases. In 1980, he became a member of the anatomy faculty at the U.S. Medical School, where he taught medical histology for 10 years while continuing to do research on prions. During this time, he was an author/co-author of more than eighty scientific papers. McKinley was a member of the biology faculty at Glendale Community College from 1991 to 2012, where Dr. McKinley taught undergraduate anatomy & physiology, genetics and general biology. Between 1991 and 2000, he also participated in Alzheimer disease research and served as director of the Brain Donation Program at the Sun Health Research Institute, in addition to teaching developmental biology and human genetics at Arizona State University, West. His vast expertise in histology, neuro-anatomy, and cell biology significantly shaped the related content in Human Anatomy. He retired from active teaching in 2012 and continues to be an active member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS). Dr. Michael is coauthor of the McKinley/O’Loughlin/Bidle: Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach textbooks.
Professor Theresa Bidle got her B.S. degree from Rutgers University, her M.S. degree in biomedical science from Hood College in Maryland, and has completed additional graduate coursework in genetics at the National Institutes of Health. She is a professor at Hagerstown Community College, where Bidle teaches anatomy and physiology and genetics to pre–allied health students. Before joining the faculty in 1990, she was the coordinator of the Science Learning Center, where she developed study materials and a tutoring program for students enrolled in science classes. Professor Bidle has been a developmental reviewer and has written supplemental materials for many books and lab manuals.
Dr. Valerie Dean O’Loughlin got her undergraduate degree from the College of William and Mary, and her PhD in biological anthropology from Indiana University. She’s an Associate Professor of Anatomy at Indiana University School of Medicine, where Valerie teaches human gross anatomy to medical students, basic human anatomy to undergraduates, and human anatomy for medical imaging evaluation to undergraduate and graduate students. She also teaches a pedagogical methods course and mentors MS and PhD students pursuing anatomy education research. She is active in the American Association of Anatomists and the Society for Ultrasound in Medical Education. She is presently serving as President of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society. Professor Valerie received the AAA Basmajian Award for excellence in teaching gross anatomy and outstanding accomplishments in scholarship in education.
Anatomy and Physiology: An Integrative Approach (3rd Edition) – PDF – eBook
McKinley/O’Loughlin/Bidle’s Anatomy and Physiology: An Integrative Approach 3e (PDF) brings multiple elements of the study of A&P together in unique ways that maximize understanding. Covering anatomy and physiology in each chapter, the textbook emphasizes the interdependence of body systems by weaving prior coverage of one system into textual explanations of how other systems work. All figures are carefully designed to support the textbook narrative, and they carry brief textual explanations to make figures self-contained study tools. The eBook helps anatomy students apply chapter content by using clinical examples that show college students and readers what can go wrong in the body, crystalizing their understanding of the “norm.” Mini self-tests at the end of each section assess college students’ grasp of the material, and end-of-chapter assessments encourage all students to apply and synthesize what they have learned.
Career opportunities for A&P students are highlighted at the beginning of each chapter. Practical advice for remembering material is included throughout, and chapters end with a summary of available media tools. This new edition and been thoroughly updated and revised.
