University of Missouri will continue to train doctors with live pigs

The University of Missouri announced they will continue to use live pigs to train emergency room doctors despite protests.

The announcement follows the Physicians Committee to Responsible Medicine rally to advocate ending the use of the pigs in physician training.

The university said they will continue the practice through November 2020.

Retired emergency physician Kerry Foley said the university is the only one of five emergency residency programs in the state that still uses pigs.
