Video Competition: The Memmys Are Back

For years now, students in various medical fields have produced wonderful music videos that are as insightful as they are hilarious.  By combining popular songs and student experiences, the videos give a glimpse into the often challenging but ultimately rewarding lives of students in the health profession. More than being a catalog of inside jokes, however, they represent a platform for creativity and an opportunity for students to showcase talents beyond academic achievements.

Since 2013, the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Columbia has recognized schools whose students have created the very best videos.  Each year, three schools selected by a panel of judges will receive a Memmys award for display and their health sciences library will receive a monetary prize. All health professions schools are eligible to participate. Duke School of Medicine students won a 3rd place Memmy back in 2015!

Because of the COVID pandemic and concern for the safety of all involved, the Memmys had to be placed on hold.  They are back for 2023, and we encourage Duke health professions students to participate! The submission deadline is March 15, 2023 at 5:00 pm.

For more information, rules and submission instructions, see the USC Memmys site.
