Now in its 37th year, Doc Opera is an annual variety show written by, directed by, and starring students from various CWRU graduate programs, including many students from the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.
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. 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.
Our secondary mission is to provide a venue for creative expression and inter-professionalism among the medical community and health professional students of Cleveland. Due to increasing popularity, attendance in recent years has reached over 1,000 guests per show, enabling us to donate tens of thousands of dollars to the Student-Run Health Clinic. Doc Opera is a non-profit organization that relies on area businesses to help us defray the costs of production and to contribute to the annual donation we make to the Free Clinic. We are grateful for the donations and support we have received from many diverse businesses in various neighborhoods throughout the Cleveland area.
