Veterinary and Medical Students

Veterinary Testimonials

Many educators chose to provide high quality science education without using animals. Their humane approach to teaching human and veterinary medicine allows students to learn using a combination of teaching methods ranging from multimedia computer simulation to self-testing on themselves and fellow students to observing living animals, performing healing intervention on those who are sick, or using the bodies of others who have died naturally. These professors work to reconcile their beliefs that animal use is an unnecessary part of education by abandoning old lessons and supporting new and innovative methods of teaching science.
