This may seem like an odd question.  I am considering the AA degree program at Nova.  It would be a career change for me.  But it occurred to me that during course of study, you might be required to work/experiment on live animals?  Has this been the case for anyone during the program? 

If so, then I know that I should not enter the program as I have personal issues with live animals being a part of experimentation as they do not have a choice in the matter.
Please let me know as you would be saving me a lot of money and heartache.  Thanks.

No, live animals are never used.  They were many years ago, but nowadays its all done on simulation dummies.

That's a relief.  Thanks for the reply.

If you don't understand that most advances in medicine, and particularly in surgery, come from working with animals, then perhaps this profession is not suitable for you.
