Exercise Medicine in Medical Education in the United States.
Whitley, Jim D.; Nyberg, Kenneth
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v16 n10 p93-98,100 Oct 1988

The survey showed that 67 percent of schools had no formal instruction in exercise medicine. A required course emphasizing cardiorespiratory fitness is recommended. (IAH)
