An authoratative, physician-founded and operated publisher

2 Minute Medicine® was created in 2012 by Marc D. Succi, MD, a physician at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, to fill the need for professional curation and accurate reporting of the medical literature milieu. To this end, every 2 Minute Medicine report is written/peer-reviewed by a doctor. Originally consisting of short, curated study summaries to help physicians stay abreast of new medical literature, the organization was built and scaled to global reach and syndication after realizing that the need for objective, quality-rated and concise medical reporting spanned far beyond the Harvard quad.

The novel tiered reporting system is at the heart of our content - summaries are efficiently organized in a “2 Minute Rundown" as one would typically give to colleagues on the hospital wards. There is an unwavering focus on selecting high-quality evidence in the form of systematic reviews, meta-analyses, randomized trials, as well as a small subset of the high-quality observational literature. In-Depth sections provide more nitty-gritty details.

How We Think

Medical literature publication trends in the last 30 years have been characterized by explosive growth. This is largely secondary to the birth of evidence-based medicine in the early 1990s and emerging digital age of publication, with new journals publishing vast amounts of low-quality evidence. As such, the average quality of published literature is declining rapidly while the number of studies increases exponentially. Physicians and other health professionals, both in training and practicing, have the onerous task of sorting through this milieu of academic medical publications to keep abreast of breaking developments.

Our approach is simple:

  • Curate the highest-impact literature

  • Interpret the literature at a high-level using physician writers

  • Make it free for individuals

  • Share our data on medical education at peer-reviewed conferences
