The VCU Model System of care provides comprehensive, coordinated inpatient and outpatient care for persons with traumatic brain injury. The system includes emergency medical services; early intensive and acute medical care; comprehensive rehabilitation services and long-term rehabilitation follow-up.
The VCU program also carries out scientific research. Our research programs focus on improving care and quality of life for people with brain injury and their families. The benefits of family support and education, identification and treatment of depression, and the effectiveness of early rehabilitation are also areas of study.
