The Mayo Clinic was designated a Traumatic Brain Injury Model System (TBIMS) by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) in 1998, and is one of 16 current TBI Model Systems. The Mayo Clinic is designated to provide services along the continuum of care after traumatic brain injury, including: social integration; health and function; and, employment and independent living of individuals of all ages with disabilities related to TBI. Our research program is directly aligned with the NIDILRR mission of improving the lives of individuals who experience TBI, their families, and communities.
