The Hippocratic Oath


"I swear to Apollo the physician, by Aesculapius, Hygeia, and Panacea, and I take to witness all the gods, all the goddesses, to keep according to my ability and my judgment the following oath:

"To consider dear to me as my parents him who taught me this art: to live in common with him and if necessary to share my goods with him; to look upon his children as my own brothers, to teach them this art if they so desire without fee or written promise; to impart to my sons and the sons of the master who taught me and the disciplines who have enrolled themselves and have agreed to the rules of the profession, but to these alone, the precepts and the instruction.

"I will prescribe regimen for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.

"To please no one will I prescribe a deadly drug, nor give advice that may cause his death. Nor will I give a woman a pessary to procure abortion. But I will preserve the purity of my life and my art.

"I will not cute for stone, even for patients in whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be performed by practitioners specializing in this art.

"In every house where I come I will enter only for the good of my patients, keeping myself far from all intentional ill-doing and all seduction, especially from the pleasures of love with women or with men, be they free or slaves. All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession in daily commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will keep secret and never reveal.

"If I keep this oath faithfully, may I enjoy my life and practice my art, respected by all men and in all times; but if I swerve from it or violate it, may the reverse be my lot."
