Background

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:

  • Deliver and expand evidence-informed services that meet a proven need and have a positive impact;

  • Expand our research effort and draw on this to support and inform the purpose of the Centre;

  • Provide professional development opportunities and scholarships for Aboriginal people;

  • Stimulate, inform and contribute to debate about strategies for improving Indigenous health so as to influence public opinion and public policy;

  • Establish sustainable funding from a variety of sources – philanthropic donors, governments, medical and health professionals;

  • Achieve maximum impact within the available resources.

Strategy

The Poche Centre for Indigenous Health works across the following three focus areas:

  • Healthy Kids

  • Healthy Teeth

  • Healthy Hearts

    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

  • http://sydney.edu.au/medicine/public-health/poche/education/student-experience.php

    “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.”

    Neill Kiely, 3rd year Med student
