A cross-sectional study is conducted with primary residents attended wet labs at Tohoku University Hospital Advanced Medical Training Center in order to investigate the efficacy of the training, especially focused on the animal ethics. The 41 participants answered questionnaires in regard to non-technical skills, technical skills and ethics before and after the practice. To identify differences in each ethical question between 2 time points, Wilcoxon signed ranks test was used because the data was not normally distributed. As the result of it, all animal ethical questions showed significant differences(0.0016≤p≤0.0380, α=0.05 level of significance). Beside them, only 1 out of 5 general ethical questions showed it (p=0.0137). This outcome verified that the lecture of animal ethics and the observation of animal care in this center fixed in the training curriculum clearly induced participants' psychological movements.
