Historical Note

The annual student-faculty show is an entirely student-run production that offers a comedic view of the experiences of a medical student at Duke, usually parodying a popular musical or movie. Proceeds of the show benefit a local Durham charity of the student body's choosing. Shows feature original songs and dances, student performances, and guest appearances by School of Medicine faculty. These shows also tend to poke fun at faculty. In the past, Dr. Bernard Fetter was a frequent subject of the shows.
