Chadrick Lane, MD


Dr. Lane is a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Psychiatry at Yale University School of Medicine. He completed his psychiatry residency and geriatric psychiatry fellowship at Yale and is currently in fellowship training for behavioral neurology & neuropsychiatry. His clinical work is focused on caring for older adults and their families affected by neuropsychiatric illness, including Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body diseases, vascular cognitive impairment, frontotemporal dementias, and traumatic brain injury. When not working in the clinic, he is likely holding a dry erase marker in his role as a clinician-educator. He has been involved with the development and implementation of workshops to teach the biopsychosocial approach to health, previously served on the medical student clerkship steering committee, presented nationally at the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry (AAGP) on innovations in teaching older age psychiatry, and supervised medical students in building psychiatric interview and formulation skills. He is co-instructor of a neuroimaging curriculum, part of the Yale Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship didactic series, designed to teach trainees structural, functional, and molecular imaging techniques in the evaluation of cognitive disorders.

Dr. Lane is a member of the AAGP, currently serving on the Teaching & Training and Scholars Programming Committees. Additionally, he is a member of the American Neuropsychiatric Association (ANPA). He has co-authored a commentary calling for the expansion of cross-discipline training within neurology and psychiatry graduate medical education, allowing for shared didactic and clinical experience throughout residency. His primary academic interest is medical education, particularly the development of experiential curricula in geriatric neuropsychiatry.
