The Duke Medicine Student Faculty Show is an entirely student written, produced, and performed musical show that benefits a local Durham charity of the student body’s choosing. It is performed each spring during Medical Families Weekend. Students work together to find a theme for their show, usually a popular musical or movie, and re-write it as a medical school parody. The show features original songs and dances, guest appearances from some of our most beloved faculty (including the Advisory Deans), and the many talents of our diverse student body. During intermission we have a silent auction, which also benefits our charity of choice, featuring items from many local businesses who support the show. The Student Faculty Show is a long-standing Duke Medicine tradition that is a great way for students to come together, have fun, meet new people, and most importantly give back to the Durham community.

The 2019 Student Faculty Show is Duke’s Avengers: Civil Ward

On behalf of the Durham Striders Youth Association, the Duke University School of Medicine presents Duke’s Avengers: Civil Ward. A parody of the Marvel Avengers movies, our heroes will be faced with budget cuts that will force them to make impossible choices and turn their backs on their closest friends. This show will answer the age-old question: Who will rule the hospital, Medicine or Surgery?

Join us on March 9, 2019 to find out. The show starts at 5:00 pm in the Duke Page Auditorium (Duke West Campus). All proceeds from ticket sales and from the silent auction accompanying the event are donated to the Durham Striders Youth Association, an organization that works with children ages 6 to 18 years to provide athletic training and opportunities to learn lessons of discipline, leadership, sportsmanship, responsibility and character. The late Dr. Brenda Armstrong was an active volunteer and team physician for the association.
