Call Now! Help End UW’s Live Animal Use
Action Alert from

FROM Physicians Committee
July 2019


In May, the Physicians Committee launched a campaign against the University of Washington (UW) for its use of animals in surgery training. UW recently started using live pigs to teach general surgery residents—following a five-year span in which human-relevant methods were used instead of animals.

We need your help to keep the pressure on. Please call UW today! When you call, it’s important that you are polite and encouraging.

Here is what you should say:

Please tell the dean to replace live animals in UW’s surgery residency with other human-relevant methods.

Paul Ramsey, MD
CEO, UW Medicine
Dean, UW School of Medicine
(206) 543-7718

You will reach Dr. Ramsey’s secretary. Please leave a polite message.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
