As part of our mission, the Firefighters Burn Institute is committed to funding education for medical burn team professionals and supporting burn treatment and rehabilitation research. To help fulfil this portion of our mission FFBI provides a limited number of education scholarships for Shriners Hospital and UC Davis Medical Center staff to attend the annual American Burn Association Conference. This annual meeting is the premier educational event for the entire burn care team.
The American Burn Association dedicates their efforts and resources to promoting and supporting burn-related care, prevention, education, and research. Their multidisciplinary membership enhances their ability to work toward common goals with other organizations and educational programs.
