This research project is about the managing of an ENT ( Ear Nose Throat) diagnosis expert system through the virtual doctor that can assist physicians in diagnosing ENT related diseases. ENT problems can distress hearing, speaking, learning and many other significant behaviors and untreated ENT diseases can be serious. Therefore, early diagnose of ENT diseases is fundamental. This study is qualitative in nature where we have used the concept of Virtual Doctor under artificial intelligence (AI) based expert system, already designed to assist physicians in the diagnosis of ENT related disease in the absence of ENT experts. This system can reduce the excess created due to the busy schedules of ENT experts and enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of healthcare system. Virtual Doctor for ENT diagnosis uses rule based system for knowledge representation and has sub-systems which can enhance the physician’s ability in reaching a diagnosis decision with assurance. In this paper, we described the management system for application of Virtual Doctor for the diagnosis of  ENT related diseases which can be used by physicians in their daily practice.
