Medical clowning in South Africa
Medical clowning is a real job. A serious complimentary, healthcare profession. No jokes! In Israel, “clown doctors” are not only an integral part of the medical system, some universities even offer degree courses in medical clowning!
So, it’s no laughing matter that some South African clowns called upon the world’s only person with a PhD in Medical Clowning, Dr. Amnon Raviv, in establishing medical clowning as a recognized paramedical profession in their country.
