Medical Nutrition Education, Training, and Competencies to Advance Guideline-Based Diet Counseling by Physicians

  • Gaps in U.S medical school nutrition education and training hinder the ability of physicians to implement AHA/ACC lifestyle guidelines, decrease ASCVD risk, and prevent and treat obesity.

  • The Advisory sets a foundation for improving continuing education programs in nutrition that can advance knowledge and skills across the learning continuum.
