    Take your understanding of histology one step further with Netter's Histology Flash Cards. Specially designed to help you master what you need to know, these 200 flash cards are designed to reinforce your understanding of how the human body works in health as well as illness and injury. Classic anatomy illustrations from medical illustrator Frank H. Netter, MD provide strong visual aids and memorable diagrams to facilitate learning. Extensive additional images, including light and electron micrographs, provide an even more comprehensive study experience. Review salient microscopic features of cells, tissues, and organs of the body thanks to beautiful Netter illustrations and histology slides. Study basic biological and histological principles as well as the clinical relevance of histological structure and function through concise textual summaries. Recognize and interpret microscopic sections quickly thanks to an at-a-glance organization. Master the histology knowledge you need to know by using these flash cards in conjunction with Netter's Essential Histology, 2nd Edition, also by Drs. Ovalle and Nahirney. They're completely cross referenced to the Netter's Essential Histology text so it's easy to find more in-depth information on any topic.

    Thieme Test Prep for the USMLE®: Medical Histology and Embryology is the choice of medical students...

    ...The major test-prep resources do not focus on these subjects in detail. A question bank...would be beneficial to those who struggle with these as an additional resource for studying ... - Ethan Young (Fourth-year medical student, University of South Dakota, Sanford School of Medicine)

    I especially like the clinical focus of the questions, which are "two layers" deep instead of straight recall. - Deborah Chen (Third-year medical student, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School)

    Well thought out and also extremely well written. ... an effective tool for students both in learning the material initially and also in reviewing it for the USMLE. - Roger A. Dashner, MS, PhD (Clinical Anatomist and CEO, Advanced Anatomical Services)

    Thieme Test Prep for the USMLE®: Medical Histology and Embryology fills a void in available board prep materials in its combination of histology and embryology. Consistently organized sections cover everything from microstructures of basic tissue and body systems to the development of all major body systems.

    Key Highlights

    • Nearly 600 USMLE®-style multiple choice questions and detailed explanations, classified by organ system and difficulty level
    • Questions begin with a clinical vignette and approximately 20% are image-based, mirroring the USMLE-format
    • The only resource containing correct proportions of light and electron micrographs for histology, consistent with USMLE® testing standards

    This essential resource will help you assess your knowledge and fully prepare for board examinations.
