Creative YouTube videos by MDs can educate & entertain

I’ve written about videos before. If you’re hooked on House of Cards, you may appreciate his Frank Underwood impersonation in this video in which he persuades an anti-vaccine mother to do the right thing.


Aaron Carroll tries to educate viewers about “Number Needed to Treat: Treatments Don’t Work Like You Think They Work” on his Healthcare Triage YouTube page. He explains the importance of not only understanding the NNT, but also absolute versus relative risks.



As one who hasn’t found time to use YouTube in this manner – yet – I admire the efforts of busy MDs who find the time.  Of course, they both have help – so kudos to those behind the scenes on these videos as well.

Here in Massachusetts, we got both a flash mob and a rap song about hand-washing.
