Ask Vanderbilt To Go Animal-Free In All Trauma Training

    1. Petition by

      KINSHIP CIRCLE

Please permanently switch to validated non-animal systems for all Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) classes. I urge you to join over 90% of U.S. and Canadian facilities that exclusively use human-focused medical simulators to train students.

I understand one Vanderbilt ATLS program required trainees to slice the airways of live pigs to place tubes and needles in the animals' hearts and chest cavities. Emergency medical training is better served by relevant and humane non-animal modes.
