Medicinska Spexarcorpsen

Every year the spex stage a performance out of the ordinary. If you like to sew, do make up, sing or play an instrument, then the spex is something for you!

Since 1954  the Spexarcorps has staged a spex* almost every year, by and for students in the medical field from Gothemburg. The festivities that follow the shows are known as the most student-like our city has to offer.
