Program Description:

PCRM promotes alternatives to the use of animals in medical education. Animals used in medical schools suffer terribly before being put to death. Our goal is to convince medical schools that the many available alternatives to the use of animals are not only more humane, but more efficient and cost-effective! Another PCRM program is advocacy of a plant-based diet as a means of disease prevention. Specifically, our Cancer Project aims to prevent cancer through distributing lifesaving information on reducing cancer risk and improving survival when cancer has been diagnosed. We also conduct state-of-the-art human clinical research on the power of nutrition for health. We also prevail upon medical charities that are not cruelty-free to stop using their funds to conduct needless, wasteful, inhumane tests on animals. And we regularly publish a Guide to Cruelty-Free Giving-including lists of medical charities that are cruelty-free and those that are not.

Program Long-Term Success:

Due in large to PCRM's efforts, this year eight more medical schools have stopped using live animal labs to teach basic concepts in physiology, pharmacology, or surgery. Our alternatives to live animal labs campaign is working to ensure that all 126 medical schools in the United States teach updated, cruelty-free medicine to future doctors.

Evidence of Impact

There are no summaries available for this organization.

PCRM advocates for removing animal products from the human diet using evidence-based science concerning its effect on human health. In so doing, they can accomplish things and reach people that animal welfare-based groups cannot. Researcher and Faculty
PCRM brings awareness to our medical communities and has the most potential to make a huge impact on doctors and scientists with regards to forming new opinions about the way animals are treated in research and science. PCRM brings credibility to the table with doctors as representatives who can influence their peers through sound logic and research of their own. Nonprofit Senior Staff
PCRM works through advocacy and education, getting almost all medical schools in the U.S. to discontinue "dog labs" and other painful and unneeded use of live animals in medical education. Researcher and Faculty
Their use of science and medicine to support their mission to promote veganism. Other

Organizational Strengths

There are no summaries available for this organization.

Its website is well-organized and user-friendly and the organization makes speakers available at no cost. Researcher and Faculty
The literature of PCRM is top notch and make sense to anyone who reads it. It is not written as though it were directed to physicians only, and it creates an awareness of the animal abuse issues in the medical field. They also are well respected and known as a fact-based organization, not an organization based on sensationalism. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Credibility, because of the many physicians who provide scientific and ethical perspectives opposed to experimentation on animals; effective and sound argumentation in their publications. Researcher and Faculty
Strong staff, political connections. Other

Areas for Improvement

There are no summaries available for this organization.

I would like to see more visibility of this organization. It would be great to get more local stories about their work in the newspapers and for them to provide ways for people locally to get involved. Perhaps they would host seminars at local medical schools if the schools would cooperate. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Higher visibility and a broader audience would be helpful. Researcher and Faculty
More publicity - more outreach. Other
