I swear by apollo physician and asclepius and Hygieia and panaceia and all the godesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfil according to my ability and judgement this oath and this covenant:
            To hold him who has tought me this art as equal to my parents and to live my life in partnershipwith him, and if he is in need of money to give him a share of mine, and to regard his offspiring as equal to my brothers in male lineage and to teach them this art-if they desire to learn it- without fee and covenant; to give a share of precepts and oral instruction and all the other learning to my sons and to be sons of him who has instructed me and to pupils who have signed the covenant and have taken an oath according to the medical law, but to no one else
            I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgement; I will keep from harm and in justice
            I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody if asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art
I will not use the knife, not even on sufferers from stone, but will with draw in favor of such men as are engaged in this work
What ever houses I may visit, I will come for the benefit of the sick, remaining free of all intentional injustice,of all mischief and in particular of sexual relation with both female and male persons, be the free or slaves
What I may see or hear in the course of the treatment or even outsite of the treatment in regard to the life of men, which on no account one must spread abroad, I will keep to my self holding such things shameful to be spoken about
If I fulfil this oath and do not violate it, may it be grated to me to enjoy life and art, being honored with fame among all men for all time to come ; if I transgress it and swear falsely, may the opposite of all this be my lot
