VP Medical Consulting Recognizes Brandie Bland for Earning Nationally-Recognized Brain Injury Certification
Benton, AR – VP Medical Consulting is pleased to recognize Brandie Bland as one of our brain injury clinicians for her commitment to those we serve by becoming a Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS). The Brain Injury Association of America’s Academy of Certified Brain Injury Specialists (ACBIS) is the largest national program providing education, training, certification, and ongoing resources for multi-disciplinary specialists in the brain injury community. ACBIS offers a certification program for professionals working in brain injury services to earn a nationally recognized credential: Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS). This certification is administered by the Brain Injury Association of America and involves formal coursework and a written examination. Across the country, there are nearly 7,000 professionals with CBIS certification.
While all of these clinicians must meet certain standards in continuing education set by their individual professional licensing boards, in order to maintain their CBIS certification, they must complete 10 hours of continuing education that is specific to brain injury each year. VP Medical Consulting values CBIS certified staff as the certification gives clinicians the tools to understand the unique needs of persons recovering from brain injury and requires certificants to stay abreast of current resources in the field.
