In ancient times, he was the chief formulator of a system of medical theories. He was head of the Kos school and also taught medicine in Athens where he had the admiration of Plato and Aristotle whom he influenced. In his name were transmitted all the works of his school.

Hippocratic Oath

The Hippocratic Oath is a solemn declaration traditionally made by physicians on the occasion of their graduation. It is believed that the text is authored by Hippocrates or one of his disciples.

I will apply the regimes for the good of the sick according to my power and understanding, never to cause harm or harm to anyone. I will give no pleasure to anyone, neither mortal medicine nor counsel for loss. Likewise I will not give any woman an abortive substance.

I will keep my life and my art immaculate.

I will not practice carving, even on a confirmed calculus; I will leave this operation to the practitioners who take care of it.

Throughout the house I will enter there for the good of the sick, keeping away from all willful harm and allure, especially away from the pleasures of love, with women or with free or enslaved men.

Whatever I have seen or heard while in or out of the profession and in society, which I need not disclose, I shall keep it entirely secret.

If I keep this oath with fidelity, may I be happily to enjoy life and my profession, honored forever among men; if I turn from him or infringe, the opposite will happen. ”
