I swear by Apollo the physician and Aesculapius and Health and all heal and all the gods and goddesses, that, according to my ability and judgement, I will keep this oath and this stipulation. I reckon him who taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents, to share my substance with him, and relieve his necessities if required, to look upon his offspring in the same footing as my own brothers, and to teach them this art, if they shall wish to learn, it without fee or stipulation and that by precept lecture and every other mode of instruction. I will impart a knowledge of the art to my own sons, and those of my teachers and to disciples bound by a stipulation and oath according to the law of medicine, but to none others.
I will follow that system of regimen which according to my ability and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patients and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous. I will give no deadly medicine to anyone if asked, nor suggest any such counsel, and in like manner I will not give to a women a pessary to produce abortion. With purity and with holiness I will pass my life and practice my art. I will not cut persons laboring under the stone. But will leave this to be done by men who are practitioners of this work. Into whatever houses I enter, I will go into them for the benefit of the sick, and will abstain from every voluntary art of mischief and corruption and further, from the seduction of females or males, of freemen and slaves whatever.
In connection with my professional practice, or not in connection with it I see or hear, in the life of men which ought not to be spoken of abroad. I will not divulge with reckoning that all such should be kept secret. While I continue to keep this oath inviolated may it be granted to me to enjoy life and the practice of the art respected by men in all times but should it repass and violate this oath, may the reverse be my lot.
