Abstract [en]

Lifestyle medicine (LM) is part of official educational goals in Swedish medical schools. We studied questions concerning 5 noncommunicable diseases: diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart disease (CHD), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and stroke from 124 written examinations conducted between 2012 and 2015. LM knowledge yielded between 2% and 10%, whereas pharmacology-related knowledge yielded between 24% and 50%, of total points. The multiples at which pharmacology-related knowledge was valued higher than LM knowledge were 2.4 for COPD (P < .056), 4.3 for diabetes (P < .0001), 4.8 for hypertension (P < .0001), 5.2 for CHD (P < .0001), and 31.5 for stroke (P < .0001). Our results indicate that lifestyle-related knowledge, though covered by official teaching goals, is currently underrated in Swedish medical education.
