ABSTRACTA cross-sectional and descriptive study about the use of laboratory animals in teaching in the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Costa Rica was performed. The study included Pharmacy students, specifically those in the Introduction to Pharmacy and Toxicology course. We found that students in both levels had favorable perceptions about the existence of rules governing the use of animals in education and in general the importance of using them for their learning process. We found differences between the groups regarding knowledge about the origin of the animals.
