The Hippocratic oath is a pledge taken by physicians of the ancient world principally to swear to “do no harm” to their patients, and to retain strict confidentiality. Variations of it have emerged in all subsequent civilizations which built off of Greek medicine. Modern doctors are required to abide by a code of ethics which is the historical descendant of the Hippocratic oath. It goes without saying that the Hippocratic oath is a great achievement in the history of the human race.
