In Vivo 2017 Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Students showcased the lighter side of medical school at the 39th annual performance of In Vivo, Feinberg’s popular sketch comedy and variety show. The event, held December 1, raised money for RefugeeOne, a non-profit organization that helps refugees resettle throughout Chicago.

This year’s production, “In Vivo Goes Paperless,” included a parody of Feinberg’s newly-adopted paperless curriculum

Throughout the show students parodied everything from problem-based learning to pre-exam rituals, performed good-humored impersonations of Feinberg faculty, and presented skits like “Feinberg Family Feud,” “M1 Fantasy Draft” and “Livin’ Like Larry,” starring Feinberg’s own Larry Cochard, PhD, associate professor of Medical Education and of Cell and Molecular Biology.

The show also featured performances by Docapella, Feinberg’s acapella group, and Dance Interest Group, whose members performed Hip-Hop, Bhangra and Salsa numbers.

At the start of the second act, “The Hypochondriacs” band brought the audience to their feet with their rock performance, including a guitar solo by John Flaherty, MD, professor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases.

The evening raised more than $3,200 for RefugeeOne, which has resettled more than 17,500 refugees since 1982.
