To evaluate the performance and reach of YouTube videos performed by Spanish university students on physical examination. We analyzed performance metrics for four videos on physical examinations in Spanish, created by medical students at Miguel Hernández University (Elche, Spain) and available on YouTube: on the head and neck (7:30), the cardiovascular system (7:38), the respiratory system (13:54), and the abdomen (11:10). We used the Analytics application offered by the YouTube platform, analyzing the reach of the videos from the date of upload (17 February 2015) to 28 July 2017 (2 years, 5 months and 11 days). The total number of views and length of watch-time, plus the mean view duration for the four videos were, respectively: 164,403 views (mean 41,101; range 12,389 to 94,573), 425,888 min (mean 106,472; range 37,889 to 172,840), and 2:56 min (range 1:49 to 4:03). Mexico was the most frequent playback location, followed by Spain, Colombia, and Venezuela. Views per 100,000 population were highest in Uruguay, Ecuador, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. Spanish-language tutorials are an alternative tool for teaching physical examination skills to students whose first language is not English. The videos were especially popular in Uruguay, Ecuador, and Mexico.
