Lane graduated from medicine at the University of Adelaide and began his medical career as a Paediatric Registrar, during which time he developed a strong interest in adolescent health.
A career change to become a GP followed time spent working in both the city and with regional communities, including Elcho Island, a remote community in the Northern Territory. These early years in his career also saw his passions expand further to include community health, men’s health, mental health and HIV medicine.
In 2014, Lane opened his own family medical practice, ‘The Health Hub Adelaide’. Based in Glenelg, South Australia, the clinic is aimed at providing high quality primary healthcare that is accessible, affordable and personalised.
Such is his belief in accessible healthcare, Lane has established outreach clinics at local schools and retirement villages, as well as an Aboriginal Family Clinic at Noarlunga in partnership with SA Health.
Outside of medicine, Lane is a passionate musician and composer, having trained as a pianist and classical singer since he was young. He was in fact enrolled to study music at the Sydney Conservatorium, majoring in composition, until he changed his mind and withdrew to study medicine instead. Lane is the writer and composer of THE FRONT, a musical theatre piece following events surrounding the Battle of Fromelles in 1916.
Lane regularly speaks on radio as resident GP for Triple M Breakfast Show, ABC Radio and Five AA. He is also a regular speaker and presenter at schools, medical conferences and via online media.
