The Univ. of Saskatchewan just announced it will stop using pigs for trauma training & will use human anatomy-appropriate simulators instead!
This is great news, but we need to ask Vanderbilt to do the same. Trauma training at Vanderbilt still involves cutting into live, anesthetized pigs and practicing procedures. When the course is over, the pigs are killed.
