First Aid for Teddy and Co.
At the 14th Big Teddy Clinic at Magdeburg University Hospital, children can once again have their sick cuddly toys treated. This is intended to allay fears of a visit to the doctor.
This year again a "Big Teddy Clinic" will take place, organized by students of the Medical Faculty of the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg. For the 14th time, children will have the opportunity to have their sick cuddly toys treated by medical students from May 23-25, 2023 (Tues-Thurs from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.) in a small tent hospital on the lawn of the Fermersleber Weg 23 dormitory.
The teddy clinic aims to take away children's fear of visiting the doctor by taking them through the process of a doctor's visit with their stuffed animals in the role of their parents. "The children can thus playfully get to know different examinations and prospective doctors and hopefully visit the pediatrician without fear in the future," says medical student Christin Große, explaining the idea behind the project.
