This series is not just about recruitment. It’s also a comprehensive resource for a new generation of cardiologists–a platform for the College to empathize with real issues plaguing the medical industry, like overwhelming student loans and balancing family life with the demands of the job.
We reviewed a shortlist of candidates, conducting preliminary interviews to decide who would eventually get the full documentary treatment and who would best be featured in other ways. Taking our time to select the right subjects–cardiologists with strong stories, camera presence, and connections to hospitals willing to provide our crew access–was critical to the overall success of the project. Ultimately, our strong pre-production helped us deliver intimate and informative stories with only a single day of shooting with a small crew.
