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 UT Southwestern Medical Center. He is also Associate Psychiatry Clerkship Director for UT Southwestern Medical School.
Dr. Lane's clinical and research efforts are focused on neuropsychiatry, a subspecialty of medicine that explores brain-behavior relationships to improve the diagnosis and treatment of people living with complex brain disorders, such as epilepsy. He is a member of the UT Southwestern Epilepsy Team, through which he provides comprehensive neuropsychiatric assessments to patients who are being considered for epilepsy surgery.
Dr. Lane earned his medical degree at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. He 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 Health Care System.
In addition to improving access to mental health care for patients with epilepsy and advancing our understanding of the neural correlates of emotion, cognition, and behavior, Dr. Lane is committed to clinical neuroscience education. As associate director for the medical student psychiatry clerkship, Dr. Lane assists in organizing and implementing the highly regarded six-week rotation, which is often students’ first introduction to the field of psychiatry. He supervises resident physicians in the neuropsychiatry clinic elective, and 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 recruit the next generation of neuropsychiatrists.
