Tagged: JHU medical school live animals
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine has ended its use of live animals for student training effective next month. The course affected has generated some controversy for some time as it used live pigs which were then euthanized after their surgical procedures were completed.
This doesn’t seem too surprising and more of a trend really as University of Washington School of Medicine was in the news about a year and a half ago when doctors were protesting its use of live pigs. Of course, if you carefully perform your due diligence on your target schools, you will be up to speed on the issues the schools are facing and have a far greater chance of having a life-altering experience in medical school instead of one that ranges from mediocre to pretty good.
What are your thoughts on the use of live animals in medical school courses?
Best of luck with your applications!
