Gunder McClary helps solve this problem by providing a concise, easy-to-read introduction to genetics. What's more, it offers students the opportunity to integrate existing knowledge, skills, and attitudes early on in their medical education and training. The result is that, even with limited experience in genetics, students can access this accelerated approach to gain a basic understanding of genetic knowledge and skills.
