Oath of Hippocrates

I do solemnly swear by that which I hold most sacred:
That I will be loyal to the profession of medicine, just to its members,
     and generous to its institutions;
That I will lead my life and practice my art in uprightness and honor;
That I will give respect and gratitude to those who have taught me this art;
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 for the best care of my patients,
     and I 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 my patients which is not fitting to be spoken,
      I will keep inviolably secret.
These things I do promise
     upon my honor.

— Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University, 1980 Edition
