In recent years, the tik tok application has been extremely popular: the format of short videos has come to the liking of millions of people around the world. The variety of content on offer is also striking: from funny and cute videos with cats, cooking recipes to educational videos about medicine and science. In our article we will tell you about what interesting you can find in this fashionable application.
World Health Organization (WHO)
Yes, you read everything correctly: at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, WHO created a tiktok page. The first videos were devoted to preventive measures: how to wear a mask, how to wash your hands, etc. Thus, the first WHO video received more than 35 million tiktok views, and the page itself had more than 2.6 million tiktok fans.
During the wave of the coronavirus pandemic, many challenges arose in tiktok (some of them were launched by the WHO): for example, washing hands for certain songs, since the length of these tracks coincided with the recommended time for washing hands.
Do not lag behind a large organization and individual doctors who conduct their profiles on a variety of topics. One of the most recognizable doctors in the overseas tiktok segment is Dr. Daniel Jones (mamadoctorjones). She is a gynecologist and in her videos she talks simply about those topics that excite adolescents, but they are embarrassed to ask their parents or a doctor at the reception.
“It’s as if you had a friend who turned out to be an obstetrician-gynecologist,” says Dr. Jones of his tiktok profile. And the audience agrees with her: now Daniel has over 620,000 subscribers.
Another famous tiktok physician is Dr. Rose Mary Leslie (drleslie). Drawing attention with tiktok means being able to adapt medical messages into the humorous form that is so popular in the app, according to Dr. Leslie. Dr. Leslie covers a variety of topics related to lung disease due to smoking vapes. More than 795,000 people have subscribed to Dr. Leslie’s account.
If you do not know English, then you can turn your attention to Russian-speaking doctors who develop their pages in tiktok.
One of the most popular pediatricians, Evgeny Olegovich Komarovskiy (doctor.komarovskiy), is probably familiar to those who have children. In his tiktok profile, he also posts answers to some questions, shares sketches from life and cases from his personal medical practice. The audience of Dr. Komarovsky has almost 490,000 followers.
Under the nickname beglovalova you can find a charming girl-dentist from Ufa – Beglova Aliya. She tells and shows short videos about her work in an accessible form, shares general recommendations for caring for the oral cavity and teeth, and also shares life hacks for young parents. Aliya tests various brushes and pastes, talks about their pros and cons, as well as the price / quality ratio. Now Aliya has more than 270,000 tiktok subscribers.
Behind the catchy nickname, the main mother of RFru is a medical student of the Perm State Medical University (PSMU) – Vladislav Chenchak.
Vladislav opened his massage room quite early, and in order to somehow stir up interest in a new undertaking, he began to record videos about massage. Later, according to the young man himself, he realized that it was most interesting for him to work with the youngest patients – children under one year old. Having received a huge response to their work from young mothers, a new nickname, unusual for a guy, appeared – the Main Mother of the Russian Federation. Now Vladislav has over 150,000 tiktok subscribers.
Of course, these are not all doctors who maintain their pages in the tik tok application. But perhaps we managed to dispel the myth that tik tok is a platform exclusively for teenagers and leisure activities. However, remember that if you have health problems, you should seek help from a specialist at the nearest clinic.
