Medical education in the US has not generally included accurate information about ME/CFS. If medical students learned anything at all about the illness, it is most likely the view that it should be regarded as psychosomatic and that exercise and psychotherapy should be prescribed. The same is true for residencies and fellowships, and for continuing medical education (CME), which physicians must pursue to maintain their licenses.
