Paul Coulthard is to become the new head of the School of Dentistry at the University of Manchester. Professor Coulthard, who is also professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery at Manchester, combines his academic roles with being an honorary consultant and clinical lead for oral surgery at the Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. He said his mission would be to maintain the school’s position in the UK and to further develop its teaching and research successes. “The school is in excellent shape with an outstanding reputation for undergraduate and postgraduate education and a strong research profile,” he said. “We will continue to deliver teaching and learning using contemporary and innovative methodology to produce caring healthcare professionals who are of the highest calibre.” Professor Coulthard has a bachelor’s and master’s degree, as well as a PhD, from Manchester. As a practising clinician and academic, he believes he has a unique opportunity to improve patient care quality because his own research and ready access to the research of others can be applied to society.
