Nucleus Medical Media’s YouTube Year in Review (2014)

2014 is almost over. It’s time to take a look at what Nucleus has been up to for the last 12 months.

We’ll focus on YouTube. It’s been a remarkable year for the Nucleus YouTube Channel. In January 2014, Nucleus reached 100,000 subscribers and earned Google’s Silver Play Button Award. By December 2014, the channel had surpassed 200,000 subscribers!


Here’s what’s really remarkable: Nucleus leads the pack when it comes to the number of subscribers for health-related YouTube channels. For example, the Mayo Clinic’s YouTube channel has only 24,200 subscribers, Doctor Oz’s channel has only 76,600, and the CDC’s channel has only 24,600. We attribute our growing subscribership to the relatability and quality of the videos we produce.

Our viewers watch all our videos, from our newest to our oldest. Even though animations from 2008 might look a little dated, the information is still relevant. Here is a list of some of the top Nucleus YouTube videos of 2014. Notice that reproductive health dominates the list.

  1. Fertilization (uploaded Jan 2013): 2,311,729 views this year
  2. Endometrial Biopsy (Oct 2008): 1,456,340 views
  3. Semen Analysis (July 2014): 1,308,796 views
  4. Birth: McRoberts Maneuver (Jan 2008): 940,434 views
  5. Intrauterine (Artificial) Insemination (May 2014): 729,390 views

Here’s a few data points to consider as well: During 2014, Nucleus’s videos were watched 25,884,885 times. That’s equals an estimated 58,317,607 minutes spent watching Nucleus videos, or around 110 years and 321 days! Additionally, the videos received a total of 48,245 likes and were shared 18,160 times.

It’s been a great year, and we plan on having an even better 2015! Happy new year, everyone.
