Surgical Jeopardy Competition & Dinner - November 9, 2022

On Wednesday, November 9, the SWPA Chapter of the American College of Surgeons hosted a Resident Surgical Jeopardy as an in-person meeting. Monterey Bay Fish Grotto, with its stellar views of Pittsburgh, was the perfect setting for members of the ACS-SWPA and their guests to network, socialize, and compete in a hilariously fun game show and knowledge-based competition.

The Surgical Jeopardy welcomed medical students and residents from Allegheny Health Network, Conemaugh Health System, Drexel University, UPMC Mercy, and UPMC Presbyterian. After cocktails and dinner, the event provided surgical residents the opportunity to compete in a game show to vie for the top prize of $500 in cash. Ari Reichstein, MD of Allegheny Health Network, and Program Committee Chair of the ACS-SWPA chapter, was the perfect game show host. UPMC Mercy: Renee Davis, DO, Hannah Medeck, MD, David Orozco, MD and Peter Zak, MD, ended the evening as the winners of Jeopardy and the $500 grand prize.

SWPA Chapter Members, Marc Brozovich, MD, Hiram Gonzalez-Ortiz, MD, and Harry Null, MD served as moderators and judges for the evening’s event.

The ACS-SWPA Chapter looks forward to hosting their Most Interesting Cases event in May, as well as new programming such as Debates & Dilemmas and Journal Club in 2023. Members will be notified by email with details of events. Members are asked to contact Eileen Taylor, chapter administrator by email to for questions regarding their member status.
