American medical schools aren't teaching the importance of exercise
Many doctors are finishing medical school without getting any training in the importance of exercise, a new study shows. Researchers at Oregon State University found that less than half of physicians trained in the U.S. in 2013 had received any instruction on exercise, based on curriculum records listed online. Of the 118 of 170 American medical schools that listed their curriculum online, 51 percent of schools didn’t offer exercise-related classes, 21 percent had one class and 82 percent didn’t require students to learn about physical activity.
