Medical Families Day & Student Faculty Show

Blue Devil with Sign

41st Annual Medical Families Day
Saturday, March 4, 2023

Each spring, 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 Doctor Mia! and is a medical school parody of Mamma Mia! 

Doctor Mia

Mia is navigating her time at DukeMed alongside her friends and loved ones. The show will follow Mia as she discovers new passions and interests, and faces failures and successes. 

Past shows have included Medically Blonde (a parody of "Legally Blond"), Sickened (a parody of “Wicked”), Duke’s Avengers: Civil Ward (“Marvel’s Avengers: Civil War”), Lube (“Grease”), and The Gunner Games (“The Hunger Games”). 

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.
