Great YouTube Channels for Health Science Students

We've put together a list of channels we think all Health Sciences students should take a look at. Even if you simply have an interest in medical sciences, these channels are sure to keep you entertained and informed. These channels are all very good resources for anyone who would like to learn more about the medical professions. They range from large, general channels like the NHS England channel to very specific channels like Dr. Sandra Lee’s dermatology channel. Whatever you need to know, there is probably a YouTube channel for it.

NHS England


Given that most medical students will have a degree of contact with the NHS at some point in their careers, this channel will be very useful for getting an insight into the largest healthcare provider in the UK. The span of the subjects on this channel are also very wide, ranging from mental health to cancer treatment, making it also an excellent source of information. The channel is part of an NHS initiative to try and improve transparency, which makes the content much more relevant to medical professionals who are trying to better understand the ways in which the NHS functions. In addition to medical advice, NHS England provide videos on the workplace that will be helpful to anyone who lacks experience or wants to shore up their knowledge of workplace best practices.

Amando Hasudungan


While the NHS England channel is quite general and very holistic, this channel is much more focused on anatomy. The videos are written and animated by a junior doctor called Armando. For those of you who are visual learners, this channel is perfect for you as all his videos are drawn and very visual rather than text-focused. Within the channel the videos contain a wide selection of subjects such as:

  • Anatomy
  • Biochemistry
  • Cardiology
  • Dermatology
  • Endocrinology and many more



This channel is sponsored by the Boston Children’s Hospital in partnership with the World Federation of Paediatric Intensive and Critical Care and aims to provide paediatric advice to doctors and nurses. All the content is peer reviewed by internationally recognised physician and nursing experts, making its videos extremely useful for anyone with even a small interest in paediatrics. OPENPediatrics also have their own digital learning platform for anyone to learn more check out for more information.

Dr. Sandra Lee (aka Dr. Pimple Popper)

A personal favourite of the office, you either love watching cysts being popped or you don't. However, what anyone can take away from Dr. Sandra Lee's channels are her incredible patient side manners when dealing with what can potentially be embarrassing problems. Dr. Lee is a great example of how a doctor should interact with their patients to keep them calm and happy during scary procedures.
