The Oath of the Doctor
I swear by God The Great
To regard God in carrying out my profession.
To protect human life in all stages and under all circumstances, doing my utmost to rescue it from death, malady, pain and anxiety..
To keep peoples' dignity, cover their privacies and lock up their secrets
To be, all the way, an instrument of God's mercy, extending my medical care to near and far, virtuous and sinner and friend and enemy
To strive in pursuit of knowledge and harnessing it for the benefit but no the harm of Mankind
To rever my teacher, teach my junior, and be brother to members of the Medical Profession joined in piety and charity
To live my Faith in private and in public, avoiding whatever blemishes me in the eyes of God, His apostle and my fellow Faithful.
And may God be witness to this Oath.
