However, due to the wide variety as well as similarity of fungal species, it is difficult for dermatologists to memorize the extensive morphologic and culture characteristics of different fungi. Most dermatology residents are only capable of identifying the more common fungal species during dermatology training.Educators have attempted to design different instructional materials to aid medical image interpretation, from lecture‐based, teacher‐centered education to active, student‐centered learning. With modern technology, almost every medical student or resident uses a smartphone in their daily lives.
