INFORMATION

Massachusetts General Hospital needs to immediately replace the use of live sheep with validated nonanimal training methods in its Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) courses. As a leader in health care, Mass General owes its patients and physicians the highest level of medical training. Unfortunately, that level is not currently being reached in the hospital’s ATLS courses.

More than 95 percent of your peers exclusively use human-based medical simulators instead of live animals to teach ATLS surgical skills. Please join them.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
