Scope and Scalpel 2023 Final Update

May 24, 2023

Hello everyone! We are so excited about how the 2023 production of Scope and Scalpel came out! To our friends, family, Pitt Med community and donors: THANK YOU! With 81 donations we were able to raise over $10,000 for this year’s production of Scope and Scalpel. Thank you to everyone who shared our page and/or donated! The funds were used for costumes, props, building our own stage curtain, and so much more that contributed to making the show amazing. 

We hope you all got the chance to see West Wing Story. If you missed the live performances, we will be posting the recorded video to the Scope and Scalpel YouTube channel soon! Visit the channel here. Additionally, check out our Instagram for some behind the scenes photos, student bios, and comedic skits that were created by our talented classmates. 

Again, thank you so much for the support with this project! It is a fantastic PittMed tradition that we are all so honored to have been a part of. 


PittMed Class of 2023

Choose a giving level


The Pre-Med

Your dreams are big, and so is that stack of MCAT prep books. $10 will buy us one snazzy prop or the perfect missing piece to a cast member’s costume change.


The Med Student

We know you’re balancing studying for boards with working on the wards and generally just trying to survive. Why not throw some of that hard-earned loan money our way? $25 can feed and hydrate our writing team for a whole night’s worth of work. Nice!


The Intern

Not only do you double-check our Is/Os, correct our vital signs in our presentations, co-sign our orders, and shield us from pimping on rounds, you also slide us a cool $50 bill to help us plaster the medical school in beautiful Scope and Scalpel playbills. You’re the best! Sincerely, your fourth-year medical students.


The Chief Resident

With great power comes great responsibility. No more notes, but you have to know everything about every patient and keep the team happy too! Cheer up your medical students with a $100 donation to help us purchase all the make-up and hair supplies we need.


The Attending

Your medical students have meticulously calculated the CHA2DS2-VASc, Cockcraft-Gault, MELD, HAS-BLED, FENa, Wells’, Child-Pugh and Centor scores for all your patients. Increase their score by donating $250 to feed our cast and crew for dress rehearsal night!


The Program Director

Now that you’re in charge of recruiting, you know what it takes to put together a good team. Ensure we have the best team possible with your $500 donation and rent our much-needed microphones and sound equipment for show weekend.


The Chair

As chair, you’re the MVP of your department. Be the MVP of Scope and Scalpel with a $750 donation and provide all of the costumes for our large group numbers!


The Dean

While only a four-letter word, the title of dean carries so much power...respect...fame! (or infamy?) A contribution of $1,000 will pay for the set design and construction for our major scenes, and let’s face it, there’s no show without a good backdrop!
