The new direction of oncological department "Surgery of head and neck tumors" in the Republic of Moldova was established in 1977. Then, the Department of Surgery of the Head and Neck Tumors was opened in the structure of the Oncological Institute. It consisted of specialists from different fields of medicine such as general surgeons, ENT physicians, dentists, oncologists, etc.
We met with IFHNOS President Dr. Jatin P. Shah at the Moscow Oncology Conference in 2005. He recommended us to be a member of IFHNOS. Thus, in 2012, the Scientific and Practical Society of Oncologists Head and Neck from Moldova was founded. The founder and president of the society is Prof. Gheorghe Ţîbîrnă.
