The Burn Model Systems (BMS) program,  funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) , Administration for Community Living, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the newest of the Model Systems programs and supports innovative projects and research in the delivery, demonstration, and evaluation of medical, rehabilitation, and other services designed to meet the needs of individuals with severe burn injuries.

NIDILRR awards Burn Model Systems grants to institutions that are national leaders in burn research and care; these institutions provide the highest level of comprehensive specialty services from the point of injury through rehabilitation and eventual full re-entry into community life. 

Each of the four BMS centers contributes to the Burn Model Systems Data Coordination Center, participates in independent and collaborative research, and provides information and resources to individuals with burn injuries; their families, caregivers, and friends; health care professionals; and the general public.
