About This Item

Chantilly, Virginia: The Teaching Company, 1996. DVD. . Thirty-two 45-minute lectures on eight Fine DVDs in four Fine original cases along with a Fine 191-page paperback Course Guidebook. No shrink-wrap, otherwise As New. Pristine inside and out. Not from a library. From the estate of Amato Giaccia, MD. Suitable for gifting.

These 32 lectures are your owner's manual to a remarkably complex, resilient, and endlessly fascinating structure: the human body. Dr. Anthony Goodman—surgeon, professor, and writer—takes you step by step through the major systems of the body, explaining exactly how things work and why they sometimes don't. Using detailed color illustrations, life-sized models, and, in one lecture, a video shot during surgery, Dr. Goodman gives clear descriptions of structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) aimed at the level of the interested layperson. Each lecture concentrates on a particular organ or organ system. The following lecture then examines the physiology of the system. Finally, Dr. Goodman discusses the more common clinical problems that occur when something goes wrong, or the pathology of the organ or system.
