Biographical Information

Dr. Peter Matthias Bingham is a pediatric neurologist and division chief at The University of Vermont Medical Center and professor at the Larner College of Medicine. His focus is on optimizing the health and neurodevelopmental outcome in children and adolescents. He helps patients acquire the skills and habits that promote self-management.

Dr. Bingham’s interest in neuro-rehabilitation began during his fellowship in neuromuscular diseases with a Pearson Award from the Muscular Dystrophy Association at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where he saw the health impacts of restrictive lung disease in patients who were paralyzed. It continued in his research in behavioral neonatal neurology in Philadelphia and later in Vermont, where he developed techniques for the assessment and promotion of feeding skills in premature infants.

His specialties include digital game-based pulmonary rehabilitation, quality improvement research (headache, stroke referral, neuroradiology referral), qualitative research on specialty referral, medical narrative, and global neurology.

Dr. Bingham’s ongoing research in neuro-rehabilitation, work that has led to three patents in this field, has been supported by the National Institutes of Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. He co-edits “The Pediatric Five Minute Consult”, is on the editorial board of "Games for Health Journal," and serves on the steering committee for the Vermont Oxford Network Neonatal Encephalopathy Registry.

In addition to directing the Pediatric Neurology Division in the Department of Neurosciences at UVM, Dr. Bingham chairs Departmental Committees: Credentials, Clinical Competency, Quality Assurance, and Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation. Ongoing cross-disciplinary quality improvement work includes a project to improve the process of referral of infants for neuroradiological studies.
