At the UCLA Steve Tisch BrainSPORT Program, our goal is to establish the world’s most advanced diagnostic and treatment program for athletes who have suffered concussions as well as non-sports related head injuries.
We are the leaders in concussion care and education, that’s why we have created the nation’s first Pediatric Sports Neurology Fellowship Program that will train the world’s best physicians to treat sport concussions in young athletes.
The Tisch BrainSPORT Program focuses on the following areas:
Our Concussion Clinic is one of few in the country fully staffed by a multidisciplinary team of neurologists and neuropsychologists.
We treat many types of patients including those who sustained a non-sports related concussion, children up to 25 years of age, collegiate and professional athletes.
UCLA is a contributing site of the NCAA-DoD Concussion Assessment Research Education (CARE) Consortium – This multi-site study just concluded data entry for the 3rd year. This is the largest prospective study of concussion ever conducted -- Publications
The BrainSPORT Program received an NIH-SBIR grant Cerebral Blood Flow After Concussion, investigating measures of blood flow post-concussion. Currently enrolling athletes between the ages of 14-40. For more information please email the study coordinator >
In collaboration with national leaders in concussion, we developed the first multi-site longitudinal study of pediatric concussions and became the first site to enter data into a national pediatric concussion registry.
