Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences Pig Laboratory – #Helping others with #HeathTips and #Research #Videos



For more than 20 years, the Physicians Committee has pushed the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences to stop using animals to train medical students. On Sept. 3, 2013, the university agreed. The video below, obtained by the Physicians Committee through the Freedom of Information Act, shows a live animal training previously performed at the university. In the video, a live pig is tethered to an operating table as a scalpel slices through the animal’s skin and muscle. Later, the pig’s chest is cracked open to allow an instructor to shock and manually manipulate the heart before the animal is killed.

The Physicians Committee is calling on the last three medical schools that continue to use live animals to transition to nonanimal methods: Johns Hopkins University, the University of Tennessee College of Medicine Chattanooga, and Rush Medical College.

A 50-gram serving is approximately the size of a typical hot dog. Learn more at www.CancerProject.org.
