Breaking News: University of Illinois Drops Animal Labs from Medical Curriculum

pigletAnother medical school has eliminated animal laboratories from its curriculum, thanks to persistent effort by PCRM and our members. In late March, the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign announced it has stopped all use of animals in medical teaching. Previously, first-year medical students were asked to experiment on live, anesthetized pigs, who were then killed as part of a physiology class. The University is the 106th U.S. medical school (out of 125 total) to adopt an animal-free curriculum.
