What's a Clown Doctor?

Our Clown Doctors are specialist entertainers, highly trained to work in the hospital environment. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are professional clowns and magicians).  

The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.  They learn the fundamentals of communication, exploring the elements that come into play: position, movement, mirroring, touching in response, repetition, eye-contact and most of all having fun and providing opportunities for play.

    Training

    The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families. Besides ongoing local training, once a year, the training team from Switzerland comes to Hong Kong to give additional training to the Hong Kong Clown Doctors where they learn the fundamentals of communication, exploring the elements that come into play: position, movement, mirroring, touching in response, repetition, eye-contact and most of all having fun and providing opportunities for play.

  • ETHICS

    Child protection above everything

    All our Clown Doctors always strictly follow the rules set by the hospitals.   They also always get permission from the children before approaching them.  Nurses also inform them whether or not to visit a particular child.
