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 hold myself aloof from wrong, from corruption, from the 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 are not fitting to be spoken, I will keep inviolably secret. These things I do promise and in proportion as I am faithful to this my oath, may happiness and good repute be ever mine; the opposite if I shall be forsworn.
