Abstract [en]

Nearly all veterinary and medical students (94 per cent) found it morally acceptable to use animals in research and believed it to be a necessity in order to treat human diseases. In contrast with the medical students a substantial proportion ofveterinary students (40 per cent) considered themselves animal rights activists. Unlike themedical curriculum, the veterinary curriculum contains a two-week course in laboratoryanimal medicine, and a higher proportion of the students who had not been through this course was opposed to the use of animals in research than of the students who had completed the course. The course modified the views of half the students; more than 26 per cent of them became more positive towards animal use in research after the courser whereas 3 per cent became more negative.
