UT Ends Animal Tests

PCRM succeeds at ending the use of rabbits and ferrets in pediatrics residency programs at University of Texas.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) has successfully gotten the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio to stop using animals in its pediatrics residency program. Previously, both rabbits and ferrets were used to demonstrate procedures such as inserting plastic tubes into chest cavities; the animals were then killed afterwards. Since last September, PCRM had been in contact with the University’s key stakeholders, and then filed public-records requests to get the school to disclose information. After further pressure, the school announced these tests would no longer be practiced on animals.
