Conscientious objection to animal testing

The Faculty of Medicine recognizes students’ right to conscientious objection, guaranteeing exemption from educational activities that involve attending laboratory exercises in which experiments are scheduled on live or dead animals, as established by the “Regulation on conscientious objection to animal testing” (Law No 413/1993).

In compliance with the educational objectives of specific degree courses, students are guaranteed the achievement of scientific and practical knowledge for passing the exams through the appropriate recommendation of partial replacement study methods by the teaching staff.
