Medical clown, Dr. Amnon Raviv is a pioneer in the field ‒ the first practitioner to earn a Ph.D. in Medical Clowning with a dissertation titled “Medical clowning with patients with life-threatening and incurable diseases.” Amnon began to work as a hospital medical clown in 1995, and in 2004 joined the Dream Doctors Project as a medical clown working at the Barzilai Medical Center, Ashkelon. Located near the border with the Gaza Strip, it has been subject to rocket fire over recent years by rockets launched from Gaza towards Israel. Amnon, together with Medical Clown Hagar Hofesh, was the first to work in a medical center under rocket fire, treating shock victims ‒ both Israelis and Palestinians ‒ and working to prevent PTSD symptoms. At the same time, Amnon was working with dialysis and geriatric patients in the Hartzfeld Hospital rehabilitation center, and in the internal medicine and the pediatric oncology departments at the Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer.
