Assessment of Diversity in Skin Colour in Dermatology Medical Education Resources
Letter to the Editor
One hundred and fifty-three patient images from the general resources and 3583 images from Dermatology were evaluated. The majority of images were Fitzpatrick Type II (54%), followed by Type III (27%). Our findings demonstrate the lack of skin diversity continues across many medical school resources, with fair skin (Fitzpatrick Type II) accounting for the majority of images.
