The criteria usually used for evaluating the state of nutrition education in our medical schools include the numbers of schools with required nutrition courses, attendance at nutrition electives, student, satisfaction with their nutrition teaching, and the number of postgraduate clinical nutrition programs.
These criteria indicate either no change or actual decreases over the years.
More important, barriers persist that exclude essential nutrition education for all studients in the clinical years.
This pessimistic evaluation is tempered by events that, if properly addressed, may lead to improvement.
Changes in the traditional medical curriculum are occurring in an increasing number of schools.
