Prof. Richard J Harvey, MD, PhD
Richard currently works as a dedicated rhinologist (nose, sinus, allergy and endoscopic sinus and skull base surgery) at Macquarie University and St Vincent’s Hospitals in Sydney. He is the program head of Rhinology & Skull Base Surgery at the Applied Medical Research Center of UNSW and is Professor at both the University of NSW and Macquarie University. After several years of post-training fellowships, including formal fellowships in the USA and UK, Richard practices in Sydney, Australia, as one of only a few dedicated rhinologists in the country. He has authored over 250 publications, books, book chapters and completed his PhD in trans-nasal skull base surgery. Richard has presented over 700 lectures and talks on sino-nasal disease management. As the current Editor-in-chief of the Australian Journal of Otolaryngology he has experience from the editorial positions with Rhinology Journal, American Journal of Rhinology & Allergy and the International Forum of Allergy. Richard currently also contributes as an associate editor for the Cochrane ENT disorders group. He is actively involved in research programs in Sydney along with training surgeons in both developed and emerging countries. Richard runs a series of courses with Sydney every year to further rhinologic education and training in Australia.
As Editor-in-chief, Richard is keen to ensure that research efforts from both trainees and members in Australia contribute to our learning and scientific knowledge in an era when advancements are rapid, book knowledge is often insufficient or outdated and data should be available online in a media-rich experience.
