Archetypes In Iamas

Good Essays
International Medical graduates (IMGs) study five to eight years in their country to become doctors. When they come to the Unites States, they often struggle with a new language and standardized tests.

Nevertheless, even if a foreign medical graduate speaks the language and passes all the test, there is still a 50% chance that they cannot advance their careers compared to the 94% chance Seniors in US medical schools have (Bailey, 2016). Both international medical graduates and US medical graduates learn the same conceptual information. However, there is a point where IMGs are learning practical clinical skills and US graduates …show more content…
Rather than hinder or help, it allows me to ask the questions, and explore the complex systems. Archetypes are not used to dictate behavior but to leverage them.

Systems archetypes or generic structures embody the key to learning to see structures in our personal and organizational lives (Senge, 2006). The systems archetypes reveal an incredibly elegant simplicity underlying the complexity of management of issues (Senge, 2006). “Success to the Successful” is not fair, though the successful work had to believe that they deserve the favors the system accords them (Meadows, 1996). “Success to the Successful” rewards the winner of a competition with the means to win again. It is especially perverse if it also penalizes losers (Meadows, …show more content…
They are that part of an organization, which represents keys to “pattern recognition” activities, incorporated in the discipline of system thinking (Gillies & Maliapen, 2008). They can be used diagnostically to reveal insights into the structure that already exists, or prospectively to anticipate potential problems and/or problem symptoms (Braun, 2002). Use them with the other systems thinking tools that are available (Braun, 2002). As part of a suite of tools, they are extremely valuable in developing broad understandings about organizations and their environments, and contribute to more effectively understanding problems (Braun, 2002). “We don’t need better solutions, we need better thinking about problems (Braun,

    I find one of my strengths through the use of the peer evaluation form shows that I have good techniques to ask the right questions to gain a better understanding of the problem the client is presenting. In looking at this theoretical approach, I found through reading that it shares important features with Carl Rogers’ person-centered therapy with the emphasis on facilitating the client’s ability to cope and to solve problems, long-term positive effects, and acceptance of the client’s internal frame of reference…

    Success has powers that can take control of us in both positive and negative ways. Margaret Mead explains that success is great, it's the winning prize,but it can also affect us in many ways. She also explains that with being successful, we feel threatened by others who are more successful than us. Lastly, she says that Americans are confused with being successful and how we should react.

    More specific, they highlight the importance of evaluation methods – like total quality management, statistical process control and the Deming PDCA circle – . They state that these methods are ‘used to gain an understanding of the present system and to identify potential system improvements’. This research might be done within a totally different industry and part of an organisation, but this statement still holds value. If an organisation uses an evaluation tool it becomes more self aware. This means seeing the strengths and weaknesses within an…

    One thing I noticed was how everyone was key to the process. Attendings were in charge of the overall study and were the ones directing and providing background information, administrative staff helped to with the paperwork, statisticians assisted to design and make sure data collection was appropriate, residents helped collect the data and even a pre-medicine student, me, helped to write the IRB approval. Doing research taught me to learn about diligence and to appreciate the importance of working as a team. On the other hand, I think you never know how a doctor’s day goes until you get to spend one with them. For that reason, I started to shadow different physicians who were key in my development process.…

    They engage in a critical evaluation of the experience, construct a plan and then implement that plan with a view to improvement. Those engaged in educational theory control the knowledge they are creating from their own actions. In this way the knowledge is used to inform practice as opposed to the assumption that the knowledge provided is appropriate for any situation. Hopkins (1983:72) describes this as being part of the process ‘discovering self-knowledge’. This allows the researcher not only to understand their world but it also empowers them to use that knowledge in their professional lives ‘to improve…
