This report compiles the list of recommendations derived from the Summit on Increasing Physician Nutrition Experts. The recommendations represent expert opinion on topics related to increasing the number of physicians who choose nutrition as a career option and on topics related to strengthening multidisciplinary educational programs, research activity, and clinical practice in nutrition in the future. The recommendations should not be interpreted to represent consensus, approval, or endorsement by attendees or participating societies. A simple prioritization scheme identifies those short-term recommendations that should be more feasible, receive more immediate attention, and possibly require fewer resources than those described as long-term. Many of these recommendations are already being acted upon by various groups within the participating societies. The listing of recommendations does not imply responsibility for implementation by Summit attendees. The role for any council arising from this Summit is yet to be defined but may certainly involve facilitating communication and collaboration of initiatives arising from many of the issues listed here.
