Ask Southern Illinois University to End the Use of Pigs in its Emergency Medicine Residency Program

 

Pig: Take ActionPlease take a minute to ask Southern Illinois University School of Medicine dean Kevin Dorsey, M.D., Ph.D., to replace the use of pigs in the school’s emergency medicine residency program with validated human-based training methods. We have provided text for you, but if you decide to write your own message, please be polite and encouraging. Here are some talking points:

  • Please replace the use of pigs in Southern Illinois University’s emergency residency program.
  • Anatomical differences between pigs and humans render this type of training suboptimal.
  • Since SIU exclusively employed nonanimal methods until this year, there is no justification for this new animal use.
