Please join us for an unforgettable performance as Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine proudly presents Doc Opera 2022: Stitch Perfect! The Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine includes its Western Reserve Curriculum, the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College, and the Medical Scientist Training Programs. Talented students from each of these programs will be coming together to provide you with an evening of live entertainment at our local John Hay High School.

Now in its 38th year, Doc Opera is an annual fundraiser and variety show that is written, choreographed, directed, and starring students from CWRU’s health professional programs. Students and faculty from these graduate programs create a memorable night of skits, musical performances, and dances about medicine and healthcare, all for the benefit of the Student Run Health Clinic. The evening includes a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction made possible with the support of students, faculty, local businesses, and other generous donors.

Our Mission

In keeping with CWRU’s commitment to give back to the community, Doc Opera is a fundraising event for Case Western Reserve University’s Student Run Health Clinic. At the SRHC, graduate students from the medical, nursing, physician assistant, dental and social work programs work together to provide high quality, compassionate healthcare to underserved populations within the Greater Cleveland area. 

Our Doc Opera mission is to raise money so that the SRHC can continue to provide much needed healthcare services to those in our local community, regardless of their ability to pay. Due to increasing popularity and the addition of a live stream of the show, attendance in recent years has reached over one thousand guests which has allowed us to donate tens of thousands of dollars to the Student Run Health Clinic. We are incredibly grateful for the donations and support we have received from our audiences and from the wide array of local small businesses and corporate entities.
