Background: Dynamic nutrition education strategies may help prepare physicians to provide nutrition guidance to patients. Activity: We pilot tested a nutrition-focused iBook chapter with a group of medical students and residents (June 2017) through pre- and post-test Qualtrics surveys. Results: All 29 respondents recognized the role of nutrition in medical care. Two-thirds reported some nutrition training in their medical education; nearly 90% reported this training was inadequate. Few (17%) reported reading scholarly nutrition articles; 84% reported they would recommend the iBook to their peers. Conclusions: An iBook is a resource that could be used to teach nutrition to medical trainees.
