UM: Medical School

The Freep publishes an op/ed essay by Edward J. (Lev) Linkner, an Ann Arbor doctor and assistant clinical professor at the UM Medical School, who chastises the university for using animals in its medical training: “When I was in medical school at U-M, I declined to participate in the dog lab that was part of the curriculum. I know I did not miss anything by refusing to participate. Even then, it was clear that using live dogs to practice critical procedures meant for human patients is unnecessary and inhumane – and it does not give participants an accurate understanding of human anatomy.” [Source]
