Remember that although you are
working hard to successFully complete
this course, you are not doing so For
us, or even For your teacher.
You are
working For yourselves and For your
Future patients, as health care proFes-
Your course is not so much a
hurdle as a stepping stone, even more
so a Foundation.
We have written this
book to help prepare you For success
along that path.

In biological evolution, a successFul
species becomes the best suited that
it can be For a particular environment.
In a similar manner,
Hole’s Human
Anatomy & Physiology
continues to
evolve as a modern exploration oF the
human, From the cellular and molecu-
lar underpinnings oF the Functions oF
liFe to its interacting organ systems.
We are authors, but f
rst and Fore-
most we are teachers.
What we and
our reviewers do in class is reFlected
in each new edition. We are espe-
cially excited about the Learn, Practice,
Assess approach to this new edition.
Each chapter opens with Learning
Outcomes, contains numerous opportu-
nities to Practice throughout, and closes
with Assessments that are closely tied
to the learning outcomes.
Students have always come First
in our approach to teaching and text-
book authoring, but we now Feel more
excited than ever about the student-
oriented, teacher-Friendly quality oF this
text. We have never included detail For
its own sake, but we have Felt Free to
include extra detail iF the end result is
to clariFy.
The level oF this text is geared
toward students in two-semester
courses in anatomy and physiology
who are pursuing careers in nursing
and allied health f
elds and who have
minimal background in physical and
biological sciences. The f
rst Four chap-
ters review chemistry and physiological
processes. Students who have studied
this material previously will view it as
a welcomed review, but newcomers
will not f
nd it intimidating.
