Westmead Rural Health night- MIRAGE
The Poche Centre for Indigenous Health was established by the University of Sydney in 2008 following a generous donation from philanthropist and Indigenous health advocate, Mr Greg Poche. Mr Poche has a commitment to improving Aboriginal health, and the Poche Centre is an expression of that commitment.
Our strategic objectives are to:
The Poche Centre for Indigenous Health works across the following three focus areas:
In each of these areas we support local communities across the spectrum of health services including early intervention, prevention and chronic disease management. In 2012 we delivered clinical services to more than 3200 people, approximately half of which had student involvement and we intend to expand these services and student attendance in 2013.

Student stories and photos
“I was confronted with a side of
medicine that is not included
in textbooks or formal teaching
and is almost impossible to
comprehend until faced with
the issues that are unique to
the provision of healthcare in
what I would consider both a
rural and remote Australian
town. With this said I feel very
few opportunities have been
so informative and so beneficial
in such a short space of time.”
