Adopted by the General Assembly of the World Medical Association at Geneva, Switzerland, September 1948


at the time of being admitted as a member of the medical profession:


I solemnly pledge myself to consecrate my life to the service of humanity.

I will give to my teachers the respect and gratitude which is their due;

I will practice my profession with conscience and dignity;

The health of my patient will be the first consideration;

I will respect the secrets which are confided in me;

I will maintain by all the means in my power, the honor and the noble traditions of the medical profession;

I will not permit considerations of religion, nationality, race, party, politics or social standing to intervenes between my duty and my patient.

I will maintain the utmost respect for human life, from the time of conception; even the threat, I will not use my medical knowledge contrary to the laws of humanity.

I make these promises solemnly, freely and upon my honor.
