HCMC-2016-Demo-350px-wide.jpgTell Hennepin County Medical Center to Stop Using Rabbits and Sheep for Emergency Medicine Training

Please take a minute to ask Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) CEO Jon L. Pryor, M.D., M.B.A., and Emergency Medicine chair James Miner, M.D., F.A.C.E.P., to replace the use of live animals in the teaching hospital's emergency medicine residency program with 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 rabbits and sheep in the Hennepin County Medical Center emergency medicine residency program with human-based methods.
  • Today, 89 percent (149 of 167) of surveyed emergency medicine residency programs in the United States teach the same procedures without using animals.
  • Top-ranked emergency medicine residencies across the country exclusively use nonanimal training methods.
  • HCMC has a state-of-the-art simulation center that, if fully utilized, could replace the use of animals immediately. 

To: Jon L. Pryor, M.D., M.B.A., and Emergency Medicine chair James Miner, M.D., F.A.C.E.P.
