  • The Oath of Hippocrates
  • I do solemnly swear by that which I hold most
    sacred
  • That I will be loyal to the profession of
    medicine and just and
  • generous to its members
  • That I will lead my life and practice my art in
    uprightness and honor
  • That into whatsoever house I shall enter it shall
    be for the good of the sick to
  • the utmost of my power, I holding myself aloof
    from wrong, from
  • corruption, from tempting of others to vice
  • That I will exercise my art solely for the cure
    of my patients, and will
  • give no drug, perform no operation, for a
    criminal purpose, even if solicited, far less
    suggest it
  • That whatsoever I shall see or hear of the lives
    of men which is not fitting to be
  • spoken, I will keep inviolably secret
  • These things I promise and in proportions as I am
    faithful to this my oath may
  • happiness and good repute be ever mine, the
    opposite if I shall be
  • forsworn.
