Please join us for an unforgettable evening as the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine proudly present Doc Opera 2021: GARLA La Land! This year the show will be held live at the historic Masonic Auditorium with livestream access.

Now in its 37th year, Doc Opera is an annual fundraiser and variety show written by, directed by, and starring students from the university's health professional programs including the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine. 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, and social work schools at CWRU and the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine work together to provide high quality, compassionate healthcare to underserved populations within the greater Cleveland community. 

With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, the SRHC had to completely revamp its model of service to maintain public health precautions and encourage social distancing. During this hiatus, the SRHC also moved locations to now be hosted within Neighborhood Family Practice, a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) with multiple sites throughout the Cleveland area. As the Student Run Health Clinic reopens in 2021 amidst a completely unprecedented global pandemic, it is more important than ever that the SRHC has the proper funds to serve the most vulnerable patients.

Our Doc Opera mission is to raise money so this program can continue to provide quality healthcare and related services to those in our local community who lack adequate access or means. Due to increasing popularity, attendance in recent years has reached over one thousand guests per show, enabling 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 many diverse businesses throughout the Cleveland area.
