YouTube for docs is big at Temple

A would-be "YouTube for doctors" has posted 70 videos from Temple University.

The Doctor's Channel.com, founded by physicians Dr. David Best and Dr. Michael Banks, launched in August and features video of doctors talking about a range of medical and lifestyle issues, from diagnostic tips to restaurant reviews. The site has also received posts from other university hospitals such as Tulane and University of Chicago.

Dr. Best, who previously founded Saatchi & Saatchi's med ed arm BestMed, said in August that “the physician, who really does have precious few minutes a day, is the perfect audience for short, succinct educational streaming videos.”
