Dermatologists must feel comfortable and confident in diagnosing skin conditions in patients with skin of color, which begins during residency. In this resident takeover, Daniel R. Mazori, MD, and Nadine Shabeeb, MD, MPH, discuss how images of skin of color are greatly underrepresented in dermatology education resources, specifically textbooks and online resources. “We really rely on our textbooks for images and photographs of disease entities that we may not see that often clinically, and so if all of our patients are not represented in our resources and if we’re not seeing those patients in clinic, we’re really not ever going to be able to accurately learn and diagnose certain skin diseases,” Dr. Shabeeb explains. She also talks about her efforts to improve and strengthen the skin of color curriculum and provide antiracism resources within her residency program.
