Big Picture Anatomy is a new approach to Anatomy and Physiology that uses a "big picture" view of how our body is put together and how it functions. 
We use basic concepts starting from the ground up, along with simple pictures you can draw yourself, to make a functioning human body, in all its wonder and detail, come alive.
