Each Spring, typically in March, parents and family members of current Duke medical students come together for the day to experience first-hand what's it like to be a Duke medical student. Sessions may include mock admissions interviews, diagnosing a patient via a clinical skills demonstration, using team-based-learning (TBL) to tackle a case study, practicing skills in the SEAL Lab (Surgical Education and Activities Lab), and having lunch with the Advisory Deans.

Medical Student/Faculty Show
The Medical Student/Faculty Show is an annual event written, directed, and performed by our very own talented medical students. This year's show is entitled Medically Blonde and you won’t want to miss it!
Past shows have included Sickened (a parody of “Wicked”), Duke’s Avengers: Civil Ward (“Marvel’s Avengers: Civil War”), Lube (“Grease”), and The Gunner Games (“The Hunger Games”). The School of Medicine’s very own band, Linton Yee and the Ultrasounds, is also featured.
Each year, a local Durham charity is selected and all proceeds from the fundraising efforts and ticket sales are donated to it. The Student Faculty Show is a creative way to reflect on the DukeMed experience, while making connections with peers from other classes and raising money for a good cause.
