The Good Medicine Specialists use physical comedy, music, circus arts, magic, improvisation and more to bring joy to young patients and to help relieve stress, anxiety and isolation often felt in the medical environment.
All of the Good Medicine Specialists are designed to be very approachable in appearance and action. Our performers all wear "medical" costumes that are uniquely tailored to fit their character. Just minimal make up. Our movements and gestures are always appropriate to the environment and are fun, playful, and gentle.
Good Medicine Specialists engage by following the patient’s lead, evoking humor through authentic connection and trust. We use the traditional role of the clown – powerless, confused, naïve and prone to mistakes yet persistent and hopeful – to empower patients in a setting that for them is often scary and out of control. All specialists are continuously trained in infection control and HIPPA regulations.
