Chadrick Lane, M.D., is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and the inaugural Clinical Neuroscience Scholar within the Peter O’Donnell Jr. Brain Institute at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He is also the Psychiatry Clerkship Director for the UT Southwestern Medical School.

Dr. Lane practices neuropsychiatry, a subspecialty of medicine focused on understanding brain-behavior relationships to improve the diagnosis and treatment of people living with complex brain disorders. Dr. Lane completed his adult psychiatry residency and geriatric psychiatry fellowship training at Yale School of Medicine, followed by fellowship training in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry at Boston University/VA Boston Healthcare System.

Dr. Lane’s clinical and research interests focus on the care of people living with functional neurological disorders (FND). Dr. Lane co-directs the UT Southwestern Functional Neurological Disorder Multidisciplinary Clinic, and he is a member of the Epilepsy Team at UT Southwestern. 

In addition to improving access to mental health care for patients living with FND and advancing understanding of the neural correlates of emotion, cognition, and behavior, Dr. Lane is committed to clinical neuroscience education. As director of the medical student psychiatry clerkship, Dr. Lane assists in organizing and implementing the six-week rotation in psychiatry for medical students, which is often students’ very first introduction to the field of psychiatry. He supervises resident physicians in the neuropsychiatry clinic elective, and he mentors students, residents, and fellows who are interested in learning about neuropsychiatric training. Dr. Lane is a member of the American Neuropsychiatric Association (ANPA), through which he works to expand educational opportunities for trainees and to recruit the next generation of neuropsychiatrists.
