A list of physical medicine and rehabilitation residency programs was obtained from the Fellowship and Residency Electronic Interactive Database. The program Website links were obtained from the Fellowship and Residency Electronic Interactive Database or Google. Two reviewers evaluated the presence of 11 predetermined diversity and inclusion metrics. The presence of individual resident and faculty photos and biographies was also evaluated. Cross-sectional and descriptive analyses were performed. A total of 90 physical medicine and rehabilitation residency program Websites were reviewed. Only 15 (17%) Websites met at least 1 of the 11 predetermined criteria. Nine (10%) Websites mentioned diversity in their program mission statement, whereas 7 (8%) included a separate diversity statement. Eight (9%) Websites had a dedicated diversity page/section. Of Websites that included information on their residents and faculty, 62 (85%) had completed 100% of resident photos and 41 (47%) Websites had completed 100% of faculty photos. A total of 30 (41%) Websites had completed 100% of resident biographies, and 15 (17%) Websites had completed 100% of faculty biographies. Less than 20% of all residency program Websites promoted diversity and inclusion. Residency Websites lack key information that prospective applicants use to evaluate diversity.
