Recent studies have highlighted poor representation of darker skin types in dermatology textbooks and online resources. Vincent A. DeLeo, MD, talks to Jules B. Lipoff, MD (@juleslipoff), about the general paucity of images of skin of color in learning resources as well as an overrepresentation of darker skin types in material about sexually transmitted infections. “We should be teaching our students and our residents. It shouldn’t be just a skin of color lecture. Skin of color should be through every lecture. We should be showing how everything presents in every skin type,” Dr. Lipoff notes. They also discuss the flaws in the Fitzpatrick skin type system.
