Dr. Chris Lane graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Masters in Engineering in 1999 and then from the University of Toronto Medical Doctor program in 2004. He continued at the University of Toronto, completing a residency in Internal Medicine in 2007 and then moved to the University of Calgary where he completed his Cardiology Fellowship in 2010.

Dr. Lane completed fellowship training in Cardiac Electrophysiology at the University of Calgary in 2011 and then at Harvard University – Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts in 2012. In Boston, he obtained specialized training in complex ventricular tachycardia ablation and intracardiac imaging for invasive procedures.

Dr. Lane returned to British Columbia in 2012 as a staff Cardiac Electrophysiologists with the team at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria. In this role, he performs complex atrial and ventricular ablation procedures, implantation of pacemakers, defibrillators and cardiac resynchronization devices, and participates in outreach electrophysiology clinics offered in Kelowna. Dr. Lane is involved in numerous Canadian electrophysiology trials through the Victoria Cardiac Arrhythmia Trials office. He was a member of the writing committee for the Canadian Heart Rhythm Society Consensus Statement on MRI Imaging with Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices and the upcoming Position Statement on The Management of Ventricular Tachycardia in Patients with Structural Heart Disease.

Dr. Lane currently resides in Victoria, but plans to join the Interior Health Cardiology program at Kelowna General Hospital once the arrhythmia program has been developed and an electrophysiology lab constructed.
