I swear by Apollo Physician, by Asclepius, by health, by Heal-all, and by all the gods and goddesses, making them witnesses, that I will carry out, according to my ability and judgment, this oath and this indenture.
To regard my teachers in this art as equal to my parents; to make him partner in my livelihood, and when he is need of money to share mine with him; to consider his offspring equal to my brothers; to teach them this art, if they require to learn it, without fee or indenture; and to impart precept, oral instruction, and all the other learning, to my sons, to the sons of my teachers, and pupils who have signed the indenture and sworn obedience to the physician’s Law, but to one other.
I will use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment, but I will never use it to injure or wrong them, I will not give poison to anyone though asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a plan. Similarly I will not give a pessary to a woman to cause illegal abortion. But in purity and in holiness, I will guard my life and my art, I will not use the knife on sufferers from stone, but I will give place to such, as are craftsmen therein.
Into whatsoever houses I enter, I will do so to help the sick, keeping myself free from all intentional wrongdoing and harm, especially from fornication with woman or man, bonded or free.
Whatsoever in the course of practice I see or hear (or even outside m practice in social intercourse) that ought never to be published abroad, I will not divulge, but will consider such things to be holy secrets.
Now if I keep this oath and break it not, may I enjoy honor, in my life and art, among all men for all time; but is I transgress and forswear my self, may the opposite befall me.
