Tachycardia (or “Tachy” for short) is a 60-plus-year tradition at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at Western University. It is an annual theatrical production that lets Western medical students give back to London and the medical community.
Since its inception in 1955, Tachycardia has given thousands of students a chance to showcase their musical and theatrical talents and help raise funds for charitable causes. The show is entirely written, directed, produced and performed by medical students at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. It features music, comedy and dancing, all with a medical twist.
Over the past five years, Tachycardia has provided the Regional HIV/AIDS Connection with over $110 000 in donations and is their largest third-party sponsor.
Tachycardia is regularly attended by not only students, but prominent university staff, professors, and alumni. Annually, our show has over 1,500 attendees, drawing audiences including area physicians and medical residents.
