Key Features

Integration of Body System Relationships: Understanding how systems function together is critical for student success in A&P. To emphasize the interdependence of body systems, McKinley/O'Loughlin/Bidle weaves prior coverage of one system into textual explanations of how other systems work, and also highlight these relationships in “Integrate: Concept Connection” boxes. Brief notes foreshadowing how a concept will come into play in later chapters are also used. In addition to system relationships, key cellular and chemistry themes are also referenced whenever a reminder of main principles clarifies a new concept.

Integration of Anatomy and Physiology coverage: Anatomy and physiology are intimately related. Discussing form with function gives students the “big picture.” Text discussions provide structural details in the context of their functional significance, and, conversely, discuss complex physiology while referring to the anatomical features that play a part in each mechanism.

Integration of Facts and Applications (this is where you want to go to show clinical content): Both the text and artwork are flavored with real-life examples that present the facts of A&P in a familiar and relevant context. In addition, “Integrate: Clinical View” boxes apply chapter content using clinical examples that show students what can go wrong in the body to help crystallize understanding of the “norm.” Clinical scenarios are also used in “Can You Apply What You’ve Learned?”, and “Can You Synthesize What You’ve Learned?” question sets. Lastly, Career opportunities pursued by students studying A&P are highlighted at the beginning of each chapter.

Integration of Text and Media: The McKinley/O'Loughlin/Bidle media package utilizes McGraw-Hill's Connect and ConnectPlus ebook to bring together question banks, animations, and tools like Anatomy & Physiology Revealed and LearnSmart in a usable way organized around textbook learning objectives. The textbook includes icons that denote corresponding media assets and a summary of media tools at the end of each chapter.

Alignment of Textbook and Lab Manual: The lab manual authors, Christine Eckel, Kyla Ross, and Theresa Bidle, wrote the lab manual to complement and extend the concepts presented in the textbook. The main text and LM share many similar pedagogical features for a unified experience.

Integration of Anatomists and Physiologists in Author Team: The authors of the textbook and lab package include two anatomists: Valerie O'Loughlin, Indiana University, and Christine Eckel, Carroll College; and two physiologists: Mike McKinley, Glendale Community College, and Terri Bidle, Hagerstown Community College.

“Integrate: Learning Strategy” boxes. An integration of practical learning examples into the textbook. They might be pneumonic, or visual, or they might be a practical classroom-tested learning device to cut through all of the jargon.

This title includes Connect with LearnSmart – an online assessment tool featuring McGraw-Hill's unique adaptive, diagnostic learning tool – LearnSmart.

Integration of Visuals and Text: All figures in McKinley/O'Loughlin/Bidle are carefully designed to support the text narrative. Brief textual explanations are included within artwork, making figures self-contained study tools. Special “Integrate: Concept Overview” figures tie together multi-faceted concepts by bringing the various pieces of a concept together in captivating one- or two-page visual summaries. Seeing all of the parts together in one place solidifies the information presented in preceding sections.

About the Author

Michael McKinley

Michael P. McKinley received 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, where he worked for 12 years investigating prions and prion-diseases. In 1980, he became a member of the anatomy faculty at the UCSF Medical School, where he taught medical histology for 10 years while continuing to do research on prions. During this time, he was an author or co-author of more than 80 scientific papers. Michael was a member of the biology faculty at Glendale Community College from 1991 to 2012, where he taught undergraduate anatomy and physiology, general biology, and genetics. 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, as well as teaching developmental biology and human genetics at Arizona State University, West. His vast experience in histology, neuroanatomy, and cell biology greatly 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). Michael is coauthor of the McKinley/O’Loughlin/Bidle: Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach textbook. He resides in Tempe, AZ, with his wife Jan.

Valerie O'Loughlin

Valerie Dean O'Loughlin received her undergraduate degree from the College of William and Mary, and her PhD in biological anthropology from Indiana University. She is an Associate Professor of Anatomy at Indiana University School of Medicine, where she 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 (AAA) and the Society for Ultrasound in Medical Education(SUSME). She currently is serving as President of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS). She received the AAA Basmajian Award for excellence in teaching gross anatomy and outstanding accomplishments in scholarship in education. Valerie is coauthor of the McKinley/O’Loughlin/Bidle: Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach textbook.
