Dr. Barland’s initial research was on the fine structure and function of the human synovial membrane- both normal and rheumatoid. These studies were supported by a Research Fellowship from the Arthritis Foundation. He has published extensively on the role of autoantibodies in rheumatic diseases and has been a mentor for more than 75 rheumatology trainees.  

In 1968, Dr. Barland moved his primary office to Montefiore Medical Center, where he has served as Director of the Rheumatology Division, Director of the Immunodiagnostic Laboratory, and head of the Rheumatology Fellowship Program.  He is currently Emeritus Professor of Medicine and Pathology at the medical school.

After a medical residency at the Bronx Municipal Hospital Center, he joined the Department of Medicine of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Division of Rheumatology where he has spent the rest of his career.
