Gastrointestinal and Hepatobiliary Pathophysiology conforms to the movement in medical education towards embracing the integration of information and incorporating the skills of knowledge acquisition and problem–solving into the learning process. Along with providing a brief review of the normal structure and function of the gastrointestinal tract, this text offers state–of–the–art information about the pathophysiologic basis of gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary diseases. Although designed as a preclinical text, all medical students will find it a useful guide as they move from the study of the basic sciences and begin to address clinical situations. The book will also be useful for house officers, fellows, and practitioners of internal medicine and family medicine, as well as for gastroenterologists and hepatologists.
