For a comprehensive understanding of human physiology — from molecules to systems —turn to the latest edition of Medical Physiology. This updated textbook is known for its unparalleled depth of information, equipping students with a solid foundation for a future in medicine and healthcare, and providing clinical and research professionals with a reliable go-to reference. Complex concepts are presented in a clear, concise, and logically organized format to further facilitate understanding and retention.


Access to this product, which may be at the discretion of your institution, is up to 3 years of online and perpetual offline access. Elsevier reserves the right to restrict or remove access due to changes in product portfolio or other market conditions.

    • Clear, didactic illustrations visually present processes in a clear, concise manner that is easy to understand.
    • Intuitive organization and consistent writing style facilitates navigation and comprehension.
    • Takes a strong molecular and cellular approach that relates these concepts to human physiology and disease.
    • An increased number of clinical correlations provides a better understanding of the practical applications of physiology in medicine.
    • Highlights new breakthroughs in molecular and cellular processes, such as the role of epigenetics, necroptosis, and ion channels in physiologic processes, to give insights into human development, growth, and disease.
    • Several new authors offer fresh perspectives in many key sections of the text, and meticulous editing makes this multi-authored resource read with one unified voice.
