About The Book

This book offers the exam-going student's perspective with the expertise of experienced, specialist contributors. It is primarily written for pre-clinical undergraduate students but also serves as a comprehensive guide for clinical students and a reference for science professionals. It contains core knowledge, identifies and emphasises essential learning points, and also enables readers to explore additional information.

Comprised of clear and concise explanations of key concepts and illustrated with colourful figures and tables throughout, the book covers renal anatomy, physiology, histology, embryology, pathology and clinically relevant aspects with integrative case studies. Information is summarised and categorised into colour-coded boxes, presenting the material in a well organised and easily accessible manner. Key learning points are identified to aid exam preparation, and self-assessment questions based on past papers are provided at the end of each chapter (including multiple-choice, extended-matching and short-answer questions). This learning resource is designed to inspire student interest in the renal system and support exam preparation.
