INFORMATION

Please contact Vanderbilt University School of Medicine dean Jeffrey R. Balser, M.D., Ph.D., and ask him to replace the use of pigs in all Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) courses with validated nonanimal training methods. Please remember, being polite is the most effective way to help these animals and improve medical education. Use the following talking points:

  • I am writing to urge you to end the use of animals in Vanderbilt's Advanced Trauma Life Support program.
  • The vast majority of ATLS programs in the United States and Canada exclusively use nonanimal methods like the TraumaMan System.
  • These human-based alternatives are cheaper, more effective, and more humane.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
