Michael Schulz

Michael Schulz's psychiatric career began at the Max Planck Institute in Munich in 1985, followed by three years in a military hospital in Koblenz that made no distinction between neurology and psychiatry; a fusion that characterised the remainder of his career. From 1997 he was head of neurology in Ueckermünde, and he came to England in 2003, taking a consultancy in rehabilitation psychiatry in London's east end. Here his warmth, wit, and leadership skills combined well with his meticulous approach to diagnosis and treatment. Over three years he revitalised a moribund department, overseeing its expansion into a highly successful community based service. He loved painting and travel, but the mystery of the frontier between mind and brain remained his prevailing passion. He leaves a wife, Anke, and two children.
