New for 2022, a host of expert dermatologists in all subspecialties contributed to developing the Skin of Color Curriculum — a complete and definitive in-patient and out-patient curriculum for the diagnosis and effective treatment of skin, hair, and nail diseases and conditions in patients with skin of color.

The curriculum also discusses systemic challenges facing people with skin of color in pursuing careers in medicine, and helps you identify mechanisms to mentor students in the pipeline. You will also be able to recognize existing health care disparities in medicine as well as how to identify implicit bias and microaggressions. Through this curriculum, you can earn 15 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Learn more about our Skin of Color Curriculum.
