Background: Physicians are inadequately trained to effectively provide lifestyle counseling to manage the obesity epidemic. Activity: Family and community medicine residents participated in a culinary medicine course taught by two Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) in University Park, PA, in March 2020. Results: All residents (n = 13) reported increased knowledge, 92% (n = 12) reported increased confidence, and 84.6% (n = 11) reported they intended to make changes to their practice based on the class. Most participating residents (85%, n = 11) would attend follow-up classes. Discussion: Residents recognized the importance of nutrition in clinical care and found the information to be applicable to practice.
