Embryology at a Glance, 2nd Edition

Embryology at a Glance bookRhiannon and I wrote a book! We wrote this book as an introduction and revision source for anyone trying to get started or to grips with the essentials of embryology. We tried to write in an engaging and accessible way, hopefully matching what we try to do with the podcasts. There should be more than enough in there for most medicine and health profession students.

Embryology at a Glance introduces the basic principles of human development, from mitosis and meiosis, and walks you through the primary formation of each body system, with coverage of the continued development of the respiratory and vascular systems during the foetal and neonatal periods.

Fully geared towards the medical school curriculum, the coverage of major steps in human development allows a better understanding of adult anatomy, development-associated conditions, congenital abnormalities and their treatments.

You can buy copies of Embryology at a Glance in different formats:

Animations for Embryology at a Glance

For the second edition we have been working with medical illustrator Steve Atherton to produce short animations to support the text and illustrations in the book. You can access these on YouTube and by using the Aurasma smartphone app to recognise illustrations in the book and display the videos upon the page (more to follow about this).
