Doctors Not Being Taught About Benefits Of Exercise

Just as well. Exercise has almost no benefits.

Training does.
The online version of the British Journal of Sports Medicine reports that the curriculum for physical activity in UK medical schools is "sparse or non-existent."

This gap in knowledge means that future doctors will have insufficient knowledge to effectively promote physical activity to their patients, which results in a failure to help combating serious diseases that are linked to insufficient exercise according to the study authors.
It would be a waste anyway since docs are just as out of shape as the rest of the public.

If they do not follow a training program, they have no bona fides to prescribe one for anyone else.
