Right now, innocent pigs are being killed in the trauma training course conducted by North Dakota State University (NDSU) and Sanford Health.
In the course, multiple invasive procedures are performed on live pigs. Not only is this practice cruel, but there are superior, nonanimal training methods readily available. In fact, this is the last trauma training course of its kind in the entire country that still uses animals!
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is urging the school and hospital to modernize their medical training and use the superior human-based training methods that spare pigs from suffering and death.
Join with PCRM and use your voice to stand up for innocent animals by asking the presidents of North Dakota State University and Sanford Health Dean Bresciani, PhD, and John Snyder, to replace the use of live pigs in their joint trauma training course. Together, we have a real chance of getting through to them.
