Didactical conception: "Sobotta" learning loop
- Synopsis: the introductory overview of each chapter offers essential anatomical information "at a glance". - Main topics, summarised according the National Competence-Based Catalogue of Learning Objectives for Undergraduate Medical Education (NKLM). Having studied the text thoroughly, the student will be able to explain all specific topics of a chapter. - Clinical relevance: being illustrated by a typical case history in each chapter - Dissection tips: valuable hints and know-how of experts as optimal preparation for exercises in the dissection room - Focusing the essential: by bold-typing of keywords in legends and labels - Exemplary test items of oral anatomical exams: to check one's knowledge
Structure and layout
- Optimal orientation: by unequivocal descriptions, clear structural arrangement and improved layout - Learning with legends: comprehensive legends highlight the anatomical key structures and explain their anatomical relationships - Focusing the essential: by bold-typing key structures in legends and labels
This edition is greatly enlarged by "Clinical Remark" boxes with descriptions of clinical pictures, where the displayed structure plays an important role. This helps keeping the learned information better in mind. Numerous tables, lists and diagrams facilitate the general overview and comprehension of complex anatomical connections.
The illustrations in the "Sobotta" allow an optimal orientation by:
- sketches indicating planes and directions (in many figures) - structural arrangement according to body regions, similar to the proceeding in dissection classes - a plenty of overviews on neurovascular pathways as well as on single muscles (one bone, one muscle) - highlighting key structures in the labeling.
A high-quality slipcase with all three volumes of the Atlas and a booklet of tables is available!
