Abeed Hirji graduated from both Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia in 2004, with a Bachelor of Kinesiology and a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy degree, respectively.
Since graduation, Abeed has honed his skills in the assessment and treatment of patients with dizziness and balance disorders, concussions, and other forms of traumatic brain injuries. His passion for treating patients with dizziness, vertigo and balance disorders motivated him to seek further education in Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT).
To this effort, Abeed achieved his Competency Certification (Advanced) in Vestibular Rehabilitation from Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, GA (2007) and Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, NC (2009); under the guidance of Dr. Susan Herdman and Dr. Richard Clendaniel and their respective vestibular competency faculty associates.
Abeed is a licensed healthcare professional, and through his extensive post-graduate training in concussion management, adherence to best practices, and sufficient number of concussion cases seen, he is also regarded as a clinical concussion therapist. He is also fortunate to have regular dialogue with some of the top concussion minds in the world; whom he considers his mentors.
Abeed is also trained in delivering training on the BrainPort® Balance Plus device.
He has been featured on local radio shows, has had articles published in various subscriptions, delivers presentations to his peers and the medical community, and has been fortunate to consult with a wide array of patients including members of the Vancouver Canucks and Vancouver Whitecaps FC organizations.
Abeed is a committed, perpetual student who highly values continuing education and increasing his knowledge and skills. To this, he is constantly immersing himself in literature and lectures that benefit his patients daily. He is also a big believer in sharing knowledge and building intellectual capacities amongst his peers. He strives to translate and bridge information, thereby filling the knowledge gaps in the fields of VRT and concussion care.
