The Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Model Systems program at TIRR Memorial Hermann, one of the premiere traumatic brain injury facilities in the world, will study patients with traumatic brain injury and traumatic head injury. The program will also study traumatic brain injury rehabilitation, traumatic brain injury rehab and head injury. Other portions of the program will include brain injury, research, communication and brain injury, sexuality and brain injury, and acquired brain injury, as well as focus on outcomes.
