Abstract

The American Academy of Dermatology has taken an active stance in addressing the lack of racial and ethnic diversity in the specialty. At the American Academy of Dermatology President's Conference on Diversity in Dermatology, which was held on August 5, 2017, key action items to increase the number of practicing board-certified dermatologists who are under-represented in medicine (UIM) were identified in 3 main areas. The action items include increasing the pipeline of UIM students applying to medical school, increasing UIM medical students’ exposure to the field of dermatology and their level of interest in it, and increasing the number of UIM students recruited into dermatology residency programs.
