Gastroenterologists require detailed knowledge regarding the anatomy of the GI system in order to understand the disturbances caused by diseases they diagnose and treat.

Gastrointestinal Anatomy and Physiology will bring together the world’s leading names to present a comprehensive overview of the anatomical and physiological features of the gastrointestinal tract.

Full colour and with excellent anatomical and clinical figures throughout, it will provide succinct, authoritative and didactic anatomic and physiologic information on all the key areas, including GI motility, hepatic structure, GI hormones, gastric secretion and absorption of nutrients.

GI trainees will enjoy the self-assessment MCQs, written to the level they will encounter during their Board exams, and the seasoned gastroenterologist will value it as a handy reference book and refresher for re-certification exams

A relatively detailed understanding of normal organ structure and function is
essential to adequately evaluate, diagnose, and manage disease. The American
board of internal Medicine has endorsed this proposition by including questions about the normal anatomy and physiology of digestive organs in the
Gastroenterology Certification Examination. According to a statement published
by the board, approximately 10% of the Certification Examination questions
test knowledge of these subjects.
Many years ago, during our training, we had our first discussion of how best
to learn about gastrointestinal anatomy and physiology. Predominantly regional
organization made it difficult to acquire an overall understanding of many important topics by studying some standard texts: in these books, conceptually related
information about microscopic anatomy, motility, absorption and secretion, and
of other topics was divided among chapters principally devoted to major organs,
for example, the stomach or the small bowel. in addition, the overwhelming
quantity of information in reference works made finding and selecting the details
that were relevant to clinical practice a near-impossible task, at least from the
point of view of two novice practitioners.
Several years later, we were able to persuade the members of the Educational
Affairs Committee of the American College of Gastroenterology to allow us to
create a review course dedicated exclusively to the subjects of normal gastrointestinal structure and function. Until its recent discontinuation, this course was
offered every other year at the College’s annual meeting in conjunction with its
regular board review. Hundreds of gastroenterologists have benefited from the
excellent presentations made at the course by many of the same individuals
who have contributed chapters to this book.
