Ask Tulane's Dean to Stick With Nonanimal Methods in Trauma Training Courses

Please take a minute to thank Tulane University School of Medicine senior vice president and dean Benjamin Sachs, M.B., for stopping the use of pigs in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) training and let him know that you want the medical center to continue its use of the TraumaMan System. 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: 

  • Thank you for halting the use of pigs in ATLS courses.
  • Please continue to use nonanimal methods in Tulane’s ATLS courses.
  • Human-based alternatives have been approved to teach these procedures by the American College of Surgeons (ACS).
  • 98 percent of ATLS courses in the U.S. use the TraumaMan System or other human-based methods.
