As a medical student, I watched in awe and curiosity in the interactions that Molly Penny, the therapeutic clown, fostered with those around her. Therapeutic clowning has been shown to be effective in providing psychosocial support to children, youth, and their families. Learning from Molly Penny as a clown-in-training resulted in one of the most impactful, informative, and transformative experiences for me as a medical trainee and as a person.
