Assistance of Medical Clowns Improves the Physical Examinations of Children Aged 2–6 Years

Dr. Noam Meiri​, Dream Doctors Amichi Ankri and Itay Nahmias​, and a team of researchers from the Technion evaluated the use of medical clowns during the examinations of young children in the Emergency Room.

In addition to finding that the presence of a medical clown improved the ability of 94% of participating pediatricians to conduct a complete examination and determine pathological findings, 95% of the caregivers accompanying their children to the ER reported that they would request a medical clown during their child’s future exams.
