Dr Lane works at the Hobart Clinic, Murray Street rooms, seeing outpatients. Approximately sixty percent of his practice is with current military and veteran patients.
He completed his Psychiatry Fellowship training in Tasmania in 2014, and his previous work includes a significant Forensic and Military component.
Dr Lane has been in the Australian Army in both full-time and Reserve roles for some 27 years, including a range of general Army duties for ten years before completing his Medical degree and working for the Army as a doctor. Dr Lane was deployed to Afghanistan in 2013, and worked with US forces there for six months as a member of the Mental Health Team in the NATO ROLE 3 in Kandahar in the south of Afghanistan.
He is still an active Reservist and works with a range of units around Australia.
He was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to look at mental health programs for military personnel and veterans, which he completed in 2015. As a part of this, he visited various US military and Veterans’ Affairs treatment facilities to look at a range of inpatient, outpatient, and peer-led group programs for both serving and retired military personnel, and intends to develop similar programs in Hobart.
His primary interests are young adults, and the military/veteran population groups. He continues to have a strong educational focus as well, providing education on mental health and PTSD issues to the Tasmanian Police, Emergency Services, Australian Army, and teaches third and fourth year medical students at the University of Tasmania.
