Summary: The Importance Of Companionship

Decent Essays
The knowledge I acquired from Walden’s MBA in Healthcare course helped me understand the nuances of the business world. To be specific, the one assignment that truly helped me get a better perspective was the week 2 assignment summarizing the “Big Five Personality Test”. This particular assignment hit home for me because it showed me the importance of not just leadership, but also followership. Until this assignment, I never realized the importance of followership in the growth of an organization. Most importantly, this assignment gave me a retrospective look at my personality and helped me narrow down which of my personalities would be beneficial in a business environment.
Learning about the importance of leadership will help me in my future

It is important that complete this goal in order to become a physician CEO. As I have explained earlier, a hospital CEO who is also a physician will have a better understanding of the medical practices in the hospital and is better trained to execute medically appropriate actions in a hospital. Therefore, to become a physician CEO, I must first become a highly skilled physician. Becoming a physician has always been my priority since high school. I have always desired the power to heal and bring joy to people’s lives. I have also lost some friends to cancer and other illness, which drives me even more to accomplish this goal. I believe as a physician I can bring positive changes to those around me and my community. As a physician, I plan on establishing the best quality of healthcare to those who need it, regardless of the expenses. I also want to work in free clinics around the country to provide for those who are unable to afford medical care. The most important part of this whole journey in becoming a doctor is not the vast knowledge I acquired, but rather the moral and ethical values I learned in caring for patients. A doctor’s job is not to spit out information like a robot, but rather heal the patient’s illness, even if it means providing emotional comfort and support. The doctor-patient rapport is based on patients comfort and trust of the doctor. Therefore, the most important job of a doctor is to know how to communicate and build trust with people. These are the personal and professional values I hope to learn from graduating medical school. In some ways, these are the values an effective leader must possess. After all, a doctor is a leader to a patient and his/her staff. Therefore, the leadership qualities I have learned throughout this course relate to the values that I hope to also gain from my medical school

    My original thoughts of doctors and their duty was solely based on the medicine, not on how the medicine relates to other aspects of life. My opinions about doctors have now changed, but definitely for the better.

I was originally enthusiastic about becoming a doctor because I love human anatomy and the idea of helping people through doing something I love.
