Required & recommended resources for SIU SoM PA students

PA - Recommended Resources, 2024-2025


This guide contains textbooks and resources that are required for your courses, as well as textbooks and resources recommended by faculty and previous PA students. Each section of this guide contains lists of various resources, listed in the order provided by the faculty.

The entries in this guide are separated by Subject Matter (tabs at the top of this guide) then by Required/Recommended (sections on each page). For each tab, the relevant course numbers are listed—unless otherwise specified in a note on the item, the book is recommended for all courses listed at the top of the guide page. Check each entry for librarian & program notes to determine which course an item is required/recommended for, or editions are available physically or electronically (note that ClinicalKey electronic copies always default to the most recent edition, though earlier editions may also be available).


Before purchasing too many textbooks (especially those that are not required), please note that many of the texts are available in paper and electronic versions through the Medical Resource Center (Lindegren Hall, Rm 301) at no charge.
