I swear by God and all other things which I revere, to witness, that according to my ability and judgment I will in every particular keep this, my oath and covenant. To regard him who serves this art equally with myself, to share my substance and if he is in need, to relieve his necessities. to impart a knowledge of this art by precept, by lectures, and every other mode of instruction to others without fee or stipulation.
I will use that regimen which, according to my ability and judgment, shall be for the welfare of the sick or injured, to alleviate human suffering, knowing no boundaries of race, creed, or color, and I will refrain from that which shall be baneful and injurious.
With purity and holiness will I watch closely my life and my art. I will not administer to a person beyond my ability but will give way to those who are practitioners in this work. Into whatever houses I shall enter I will go to aid the sick or injured, abstaining from every voluntary act of injustice or corruption.
Whatever in the life of men I shall see or hear in my service or without my service, that which shall not be made public, this I will hold in silence, believing that such things should not be spoken.
While I keep this, my oath, inviolate and unbroken, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and my art, forever honored by all men; but should I by transgression violate it, be mine the reverse.
