Medical Alumni Association

Scope and Scalpel 2017

Dear Alumni,

My name is Eva Urréchaga, and I am the new producer for the Scope and Scalpel Society. Scope and Scalpel has been a beloved tradition for the graduating class of the Pitt School of Medicine for 62 years. Each year, the fourth-year students write original songs and stories and perform in this cherished musical.

This year, my class will have the opportunity to express their creativity and showcase their talents outside of the classroom while reflecting on the trials and tribulations of four years of medical school. Being a part of the Scope and Scalpel Society has given me the opportunity to see my classmates put down their textbooks in exchange for props and video cameras.

This memorable production and weekend would not be possible without the support from friends, family, and alumni. I write to you now with a personal appeal to consider donating to help make this show a reality and continue a tradition that is more than 60 years old. A donation, regardless of size, can help make a difference to the Pitt Med family.

This year, Scope and Scalpel will take place on Friday, May 19 and Sunday,
May 21 at Central Catholic High School. We would be thrilled to see you there!

Thank you for your consideration in helping to support our production.
