BBC News – Medical students ‘not taught activity benefits’:

‘Most medical students are not being taught about the benefits of exercise for patients, research in the British Journal of Sports Medicine suggests…Researchers surveyed the UK’s 31 medical schools and found instruction was “sparse or non-existent”…Only four taught undergraduates about the benefits of physical exercise in each year of their course.’

With a third of UK adults not getting enough physical activity and associated health issues increasing as a result, the new generation of medical professionals need far more support in this area to help adults and children alike through this modern society challenge.
