Indigenous Community Health Program

The Indigenous Community Health Program (ICHP) is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who wish to make a difference in the health and wellbeing of their community.

The course focuses on six main areas and objectives:

  1. Indigenous Terms of Reference
  2. Primary health care practices
  3. Community development
  4. Health Promotion
  5. Project management; and
  6. Evaluation research

The course aims to contribute to Indigenous self determination and empowerment. Course graudates should be able to assist, encourage and promote health and wellbeing among their community.

The ICHP program is delivered by block release. This means you will attend seven fortnight-long intensive session at Curtin University's Bentley campus and spend the rest of your time working and studying in your home community.

How to apply

Students who are interested in joining this course need to come along to an admissions and information workshop usually held each November/December in Perth, Darwin and Cairns. At this workshop you will sit an admissions test, have an interview with ICHP staff and find out more information about the course.
