Medical Schools in Poland End Dog Labs

In a move that will likely influence other schools in Eastern Europe, the Medical Academy of Warsaw and the University of Poznan have eliminated their live dog laboratories. They will be replaced with high-tech computer programs, providing a more relevant, efficient, and humane teaching method. Since 1994, PCRM staff has been working with the Polish Fundacja Animals to encourage the use of alternative methods and locate appropriate software. In the spring of 1995, PCRM’s Director of Research met with the Fundacja Animals in Warsaw to offer direct assistance in this impressive effort.

Professors Kazimierz Ziemnicki of Poznan and Andrzej Trzebski of Warsaw are so enthusiastic about the new non-animal methods that they are planning a conference for medical schools throughout Eastern Europe to focus on implementing non-animal methods.
