The 10 Best Medical Parody Music Videos

While compiling my list of the 10 greatest scientific music videos from the past decade, I came across dozens of parodies featuring doctors and medical staff. So that they don’t go unseen in my obscure YouTube playlist, here they are. https://www.forbes.com/sites/jvchamary/2021/12/30/science-parody-music-videos-songs/ ## In Clinic (2012) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HpaUVtbVbQ Similar in style to Bad Project, this is a parody of ‘Ni**as In Paris’ by Jay-Z & Kanye West. It was written/performed by Vanessa Prokuski, now a hand surgeon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fl4L4M8m4d0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gG_dA32oH44 ## Thrift Lab (2013) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZL7a3_JRWQY Based on ‘Thrift Shop’ by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, this stars technicians from the University of Florida Department of Pathology. It’s cheesy and charming. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QK8mJJJvaes ## What Does the Spleen Do? (2013) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEi_4Cyx4Uw One of several great videos from Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Dental Medicine, this parodies ‘The Fox (What Does The Fox Say?)’ by Ylvis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jofNR_WkoCE ## I Don’t Know (2014) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtAG3e3JLNI With singing is so good it snuck into the science list, this parody of ‘Let It Go’ from Frozen was produced for the University of Chicago School of Medicine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moSFlvxnbgk ## Ain’t the Way to Die (2015) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqaVacVpbQk While most videos are light-hearted, this one by Dr Zubin Damania (AKA ZDoggMD) has a series message. It’s based on ‘Love The Way You Lie’ by Eminem & Rihanna. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uelHwf8o7_U ## Milkshake (2015) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=je0IExXXN9Y Another one from Harvard, this parody of ‘Milkshake’ by Kelis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AwXKJoKJz4 ## Dear Future Doctor (2015) Stanford University School of Medicine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Reo_pnI1A64 ‘Dear Future Husband’ by Meghan Trainor ## Can’t Feel My Face (2016) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oghh1U9JcAE Johns Hopkins School of Medicine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEI4qSrkPAs Can’t Feel My Face by The Weeknd ## It’s Not A Zebra (2017) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAgYMSUUYAM Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Dental Medicine ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ by Justin Timberlake ## At WashU (2017) Washington University School Of Medicine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TMh7XR_A3o ‘A Shape of You Parody’ by Ed Sheehan ## Every Body, We’re Duke Med (2018) Duke University School of Medicine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jF4RfaNn1Pk Backstreet Boys – Everybody (Backstreet’s Back) ## thank u, next (2019) Stanford Medical School https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uqhao49IwB8 ‘thank u, next’ by Ariana Grande https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gl1aHhXnN1k essentially prospectus to attract students, rejection from med school https://youtu.be/aEi_4Cyx4Uw ## Toxic (2019) https://youtu.be/lCPC3qmb1UI Yale School of Medicine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCPC3qmb1UI ‘Toxic’ by Britney Spears https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOZuxwVk7TU
