About The Author

Michael McKinley

Michael McKinley

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.

Theresa Bidle

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.

Valerie O'Loughlin

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.

McKinley’s Anatomy & Physiology An Integrative Approach 2nd edition brings a number of elements of the study of A&P collectively in ways that maximize understanding. Textbook discussions provide structural details within the context of their functional significance to integrate coverage of anatomy and physiology in every chapter.

Chapters emphasize the interdependence of body systems by weaving prior coverage of 1 system into textual explanations of how other systems work. These system relationships are additionally covered in “Integrate: Concept Connection” boxes. All figures are carefully designed to help the etextbook narrative and carry brief textual explanations to make figures self-contained study instruments. Special “Concept Overview” figures in every chapter tie together multi-faceted ideas in 1 or 2 page visual summaries.

Applications are presented in “Integrate: Clinical View” boxes to apply chapter content material using clinical examples that show students what can go wrong within the body to help crystallize understanding of the “norm.” Critical Thinking questions in “What Do You Think?” engage anatomy students in analysis or application to encourage college students to think globally about the content.

‘What Did You Learn’ are mini self-assessments at the end of every section that assess whether or not college students have an adequate grasp of the material before moving on. End-of-chapter “Challenge Yourself” assessments include ‘Do You Know the Basics” “Can You Apply What You have Learned?” and “Can You Synthesize What You have Learned?” question sets.

Career opportunities pursued by college students studying Anatomy and Physiology 2e PDF are highlighted at the start of every chapter. Everyday analogies and practical advice for remembering the content are offered in “Integrate: Learning Strategy” boxes. Chapters in the ebook finish with a summary of media tools available to help learn each chapter’s content.
