George Washington University – Film & Discussion: “Code Black”
November 12, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join BRI’s GWU Chapter and the GW Emergency Medicine Interest Group for a Code Black film screening, followed by a panel discussion with select EMed faculty and residents. Refreshments will be served.
Code Black is a must-see documentary for any medical student, regardless of specialization. This documentary is about Emergency Room medicine, and specifically about the LA County Hospital’s C-Booth trauma center. Follow the eye-opening, real world experience of ER doctors as their ability to deliver quality ER care changes when they move from the Old County Hospital to the New County Hospital. Read BRI contributing blogger Derek Dye’s movie review or watch the trailer.
POST-EVENT REPORT: There was an incredible turnout for this event. Approximately 150 people attended this event, and 20 people signed up for our email list. The GW Emergency Medicine Interest Group provided light movie snacks, but BRI did most of the organizing and leg work. We had planned to do a post-screening panel discussion with local Emergency Medicine physicians, but unfortunately that did not happen due to last minute scheduling conflicts with two of our panel members.
Overall it was a very positive event. It left people asking questions. Even though it was later in the evening, people stayed afterwards and just talked about the issues addressed by the film.
TESTIMONIAL: “Definitely an eye opener. Made me wonder what my facility will be like.” — MS3 interested in Emergency Medicine
