As Doctor of Medicine I will serve from this day,
with human art and imperfect science.
Alleviate our suffering and pain as you may.
Enhance our health and self-reliance.
I serve in my calling without concern
for origin, race, religion, or wealth.
We share in your effort to practice and learn
what we may do to nurture health.
I regard life as sacred. Its dignity I defend.
My patient's will I uphold and respect.
Explain our choices so that we may comprehend,
and be wise in the decisions that we elect.
I will base my treatments on the proper evidence,
