Military Health System

The National Intrepid Center of Excellence

Welcome to the new National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) website, the headquarters of the Defense Intrepid Network for Traumatic Brain Injury and Brain Health (Intrepid Network).

The NICoE is dedicated to improving the lives of patients and families affected by traumatic brain injury (TBI) through collaborative efforts with patients, families, referring providers, and researchers. Since opening on June 24, 2010, in Bethesda, Maryland, we have established a reputation for excellence in TBI and brain health clinical care, research, and education.

The NICoE and the Intrepid Network are central to TBI care and innovation across the Military Health System, which ensures patients have:

  • A point of entry to the care system
  • A clear path through diagnosis, treatment, and reintegration
  • Consistent access to high quality TBI treatment, research, and education
