Killing Dogs in Training of Doctors Is to End

The Case Western Reserve School of Medicine has announced that it is ending its practice of teaching cardiology students by operating on live dogs, according to the New York Times. Case Western is the last medical school in the U.S. to use the method. The Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine says that of the 126 American medical schools, only 11 still sacrifice animals for teaching.
