Medical education has long held inequities when educating on dermatology for skin of color. More recent awareness of these long-standing issues has highlighted a need to ensure better dermatology education. This review will outline additional resources that can be used for training students and practicing providers in skin of color dermatology. While there is mixed data on how confidence correlates with diagnostic accuracy, studies show that medical students and residents lack confidence in skin of color dermatology. Resources including digital learning tools, books, and social media platforms may provide avenues to increase exposure to skin of color dermatology and potentially increase the confidence of medical providers to care for all patients seeking dermatologic care.
