Congratulations to Drs. Guy Fried, Brian Kucer, and Patrick Rommel, who are among the first physicians nationwide to receive their certification in Brain Injury Medicine. The doctors are three of 321 physicians who passed the very first BIM subspecialty exam ever administered.
In September 2011, the American Board of Medical Specialties approved an application (cosponsored by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology) to offer certification in BIM.
Certification in BIM recognizes those physicians who provide a high level of care for patients with brain injury and their families in hospital, post-acute settings, and over the continuum of care to facilitate the process of recovery and improve medical and functional outcomes.
