Welcome to dermoscopedia academy. This collection of diagnoses, features, and teaching images was identified by a group of pigmented lesion and dermoscopy experts as an appropriate foundational proficiency in dermoscopic image interpretation for dermatology residents.[1] This content is designed to help form a strong knowledge base in dermoscopy which can be built upon with further study and clinical practice in order to achieve clinical excellence. The diagnoses and features listed herein are not all-inclusive, and links to main dermoscopedia content will be provided throughout if more in-depth learning is desired. Short descriptions of dermoscopic features have also been added from the main dermoscopedia website.
