    What are your opinions on the use of animals for Veterinary School? Do you think your opinions will change if you are accepted to the study programme?

      How to Answer

      This question is asking for your opinion, therefore it is recommended that prior to interview you research into laws that surround the use of live animals in schools, so that you have an understanding of the subject nature and outcomes. Whilst there is no wrong or right answer here, considering the use of animals for study no longer happens, it is recommended to answer in favour of this change.

      "I disagree with the use of live animals for study programmes and fully support the changes to the academic system to prevent this happening. I believe that the use of synthetic materials and simulations is a far better method as it allows students to learn at their own pace with the ability to repeat a procedure as often as needed, and this eliminates the need for animals to be used"

      "I personally disagree with using live animals to practice medical procedures. As veterinarians, it is our responsibility to help animals and care for them. When practicing, mistakes are certain to happen. Thus, simulations and models can allow for these mistakes to occur without causing any harm to animals. However, during clinical, watching licensed veterinarians perform the procedures will be a valuable experience to the student's education."

      Marcie's Answer

      Excellent answer! You support your opinion with sound reasoning and offer up an alternative solution (simulations and models). The idea of watching licensed veterinarians perform procedures is also a great suggestion.

      "My views on animal welfare will not be swayed if I am accepted into the course. I will always endeavour to prevent suffering and not cause it. Because of this, I would not be comfortable with harming animals for the benefit of my own. Especially when there are alternatives to using animals to learn, like through simulations."

      Rachelle's Answer

      You are solid in your beliefs, and this shows great character and strength. It seems you have a good understanding of the alternatives available to the veterinary education industry, which is great!

      "I disagree with the use of animals for practicing procedures that are unnecessary to the animal. I think that the use of simulative materials better allows for mistakes to be made and the opportunity to correct errors and practice without causing unnecessary pain to animals. Additionally, clinic rotations, such as are offered here, better prepare students by letting them observe professionals in the clinic setting."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Nicely said! It's great that you support the further use of simulations and simulative materials. Your genuine care for animals shines through.
