Centers and Institutes

Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems Center

The Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Model Systems, started in 1987-88, are funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research. The TBI Model Systems are called “model systems” because they are national leaders in TBI-related care and research, designated to conduct research by the Department of Health and Human Services. Currently, 16 TBI Model Systems Centers exist in the United States, each providing the highest level of comprehensive and multidisciplinary rehabilitation care that includes emergency medical, acute medical, and post-acute services. In addition to providing direct services, these centers play a pivotal role in building national capacity for high-quality treatment and research serving persons with TBI, their families and their communities.

Flora Hammond, MD and James Malec, MD direct the IU School of Medicine Traumatic Brain Injury Model System Center with the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana.
