This book is prepared primarily to help the students studying in Phase 1 of the medical programme at the Faculty of Medical and Health Science, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS), to gain basic anatomical knowledge that is required for physical examination and diagnosis of diseases. The format of the book reflects the Objectively Structured Practical Examination (OSPE) conducted in the Medical Programme at UNIMAS where the basic sciences are integrated with the clinical sciences through the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach. There are 75 illustrations in this book comprising photographs of anatomy models and bones, hand drawings and photomicrographs of paraffin embedded tissue specimens that are part of the teaching materials at the medical faculty. This is a useful guide to students as each station in this book deals with not only anatomy and allied sciences, but also with physiology, biochemistry, orthopaedics and general medicine; so students have to think of each question or station in an integrative manner before they attempt an answer. The integrative nature of each OSPE station which is shown in this book could serve as model for lecturers to construct their own OSPE stations. This book, therefore, is a must have to the Medical students and lecturers who are involved in Problem-Based Learning Programme.
