Ask the University of Washington to End the Use of Pigs for Paramedic Training

PigPlease take a minute to ask University of Washington president Michael Young to replace the use of pigs in the school’s paramedic training 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 the University of Washington’s paramedic training program.
  • Anatomical differences between pigs and humans render this type of training suboptimal.
  • Other regional programs teaching the same procedures do not use animals
  • UW has a state-of-the-art simulation center that could replace the use of animals immediately.


  • Michael Young
