The Good Doctor(2017)


The Good Doctor(2017)

They're both equally upsetting, but if you ask us, Shi-on's bunny could've probably survived in the cage. So score one for the good ol' U.S. of A. for bunny death realism. Despite perpetrating the most brutal bunny death since Fatal Attraction, ABC's The Good Doctor has proven to be its own beast that maintains the heartwarming spirit of the original, which is exactly what Shore set out to do -- and why he thinks there are so many adaptations these days. "I don't think ... you look at it and go, 'Oh, I can make that American,'" he says. "I think we're just going, 'That's a great story. I would like to tell that story and make it my own.' And that's what happened here."

Methods: The assumption that there is a uniform 'good doctor' identity, which must be inculcated into medical students, underlies much of what medical educators do, and what our regulators enforce. Although diversity is encouraged when students are selected for medical school, pressure to professionalise students creates a drive towards a standardised professional identity by graduation. Using excerpts from reflective pieces written by two junior medical students, we review the basic concepts of Figured Worlds and demonstrate how it can shed light on the implications of this tension. Taking a Bakhtinian approach to discourse, we show how Adam and Sarah develop their professional identities as they negotiate the multiple overlapping and competing ways of being a doctor that they encounter in the world of medical practice. Each demonstrates agency by 'authoring' a unique identity in the cultural world of medicine, as they appropriate and re-voice the words of others.

On the one hand, I was thrilled to see a person with autism who is not only gifted but has great emotional understanding. For instance, in the pilot, Dr. Murphy calls out his attending Dr. Melendez for being arrogant. On the other hand, I cringed that many viewers will think that an individual with autism inevitably has savant-like powers or might not find an individual with autism to be interesting if he does not. My autistic son is highly verbal, sociable and funny and can recite every stop on the Chicago Transit Authority, but he is not a savant. In showing us individuals on the spectrum, creators of shows such as Atypical and The Good Doctor should strive to show more nuance and range. The risk of developing only characters with autism who are savants will further stereotype people on the spectrum while diluting the concept of a spectrum altogether. The reality is that many kinds of individuals have autism. Although 10% of autistic individuals has some kind of savantism (compared to 1% of the general population), 90% of autistic individuals are not savants. I hope that creators of television shows such as The Good Doctor can move past this one representation and show us many other people who have autism. That would truly be good.

Which, as good as Melendez and Andrews are, only Dr. Glassman, I can imagine, handling that with Claire in such a way to both keep her from getting into a funk about it but also addressing it as a serious thing.

In asking how this phenomenon is made sense of in public discourse in South Africa, we examine a range of sources, including novels, media coverage, blogs, articles, and books by doctors and students. What emerges from the various discursive constructions of the 'good doctor' (pace Damon Galgut) is a discussion of 'values' and 'value,' and the disjunctures between the physician-self and the social and professional contexts of the medical encounter.

Thinking with these images in the South African context, a number of such archetypes are at hand. Returning to Galgut's novel, Frank Eloff exemplifies the hardened cynic, while Lawrence Waters is the healer who needs to help (see also Malkki 2015). He has spent a year doing humanitarian work in the Sudan before arriving at the rural South African posting and wants to set up outreach clinics, despite lacking supplies. The good doctor is as much a discursive as a social figure, and several South African examples are at hand for sketching out this terrain.

We all go through multiple situations at work and in our personal lives that might test our patience. Imagine we decide to act, or react instantly based on our instincts, there are potentially more chances of bad than good outcomes from it. Please remember, nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

Hi guys! Before I get into the episode, I have to tell you some good news. I finally have my own laptop again. I cannot thank Meghan enough for letting me use her laptop for the past couple of weeks and I am excited to have this be my first post on my new laptop. 59ce067264
