The Sydney Head and Neck Cancer Institute (SHNCI) was founded in 2002 by the late Professor Christopher O'Brien AO. It was established to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment to patients with cancers and diseases of the head and neck.
The Institute is part of the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse and brings together over 40 highly skilled medical and allied health professionals including surgeons, radiation and medical oncologists, dental
specialists, speech therapists, specialist nurses and dieticians, along with research scientists and data managers.
The Department has a national and international reputation for excellence. Over 450 new patients (200 with cancer) are seen annually and the computerised database of the Department is the largest in Australasia.

The Sydney Head & Neck Cancer Institute offers a fellowship program for national and international doctors for a period of 12 months. Two fellowships are offered each year, one commencing in January and the other in July. This training program has been planned to provide fellows with skills in head and neck oncology. The fellows are involved in a full range of clinical activities of the Head and Neck Service at Chris O'Brien Lifehouse and these duties may extend to activities elsewhere in the area as required.
