I swear, with Jesus the Great Physician as my witness, to use my power and judgment to bring the following oath and written covenant to fulfillment: To consider dear to me, as parents, those who taught me this art, and to hold all humanity in kinship, as mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, daughters and sons. I will impart a knowledge of this art to such students as live by this oath. And I will use my art to the benefit of all creation—the forgotten and the forgetful, the sick and the strong, the fettered and the free—in accordance with my ability and my judgment, keeping from them what is to their harm or injustice. And in a pure and holy way I will guard my life and art. Into as many houses as I may enter, I will go for the benefit of those within, staying far from all harmful activity, whether through my sexual or social conduct, my speech, work, action or inaction. In humility of spirit I will readily consult others whose arts and gifts can help meet a certain need. And I will stand as a Holy Witness to those I meet and those to whom I minister, and as such will hold in sacred confidence all that I come to know, in my work and in my daily life, as far as the law of justice permits, as written by God and man. Keeping this oath faithfully, may I long experience the joy of a life spent using my gifts to heal and to uplift, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. With God as my helper, may I be ever uplifted and upheld in rendering this oath fulfilled, preserving the finest traditions of my calling.
