Biographical Information

Dr. Matthew Hollander is a pediatric rheumatologist at the University of Vermont Children's Hospital and assistant professor at the Larner College of Medicine at UVM in Burlington, VT. He specializes in pediatric chronic illnesses such as juvenile arthritis, lupus, and connective tissue diseases. His research interests include Lean methodology for quality improvement.

Dr. Hollander is continually humbled by the resilience young kids and adolescents can display when challenged by a chronic disease. As a parent, he knows it can be tough to make the best decision for your child when chance is involved. Helping kids and families know they have all the information and tools they need to succeed motivates him to become a better doctor every day.

Dr. Hollander became interested in this specialty after realizing what he enjoyed most about practicing pediatrics: seeing kids develop over time, learning about the whole body and being part of a team to support his patients. For him, rheumatology is about mobility and tailoring each therapy for the most benefit and least risk. Dr. Hollander is excited to be part of an evolving field to bring patients better treatments.
