More Medical Schools Drop Animal Labs

Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, N.J., has agreed to drop all animal laboratories from its medical teaching curriculum. PCRM had been working to convince the school to use better teaching methods which eliminate animal use. This fall, the school joins Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, and many other prestigious medical schools with an entirely animal-free curriculum.

The school still has animal laboratories in research, but we are pleased to see this important step of progress in eliminating animal use.

In addition, medical schools at the University of Missouri at Columbia and Technion University in Haifa, Israel, are following suit. PCRM’s video Alternatives in Medical Education was sent to both schools. PCRM Advisory Board member Henry J. Heimlich, M.D., and Nina Natelson of Concern for Helping Animals in Israel also encouraged the school to make the change.
