The Musculoskeletal System is an anatomy reference and revision guide combining detailed illustrations with a strong clinical focus to allow an easier correlation between anatomy and practice. A highly illustrated guide, separated in manageable sections by anatomical area, provides a compact and complete account of the body’s complex system of bones and muscles whilst also considering joints, ligaments, and innervation.

The Musculoskeletal System is aimed at medical students, on both the standard 5-year and the accelerated 4-year graduate-entry course, and to junior doctors and residents in training or approaching surgical examinations. It also appeals to related specialties, including sport science, physiology, and biomedical science; in addition to the wider scientific audience.
