Classical Chinese Medicine Oath

I promise to follow the way of the Great Physician.

 I will strive to live in harmony with nature,

and teach my patients to do the same.

I will stay calm, and completely committed when treating disease.

I will not give way to personal wishes and desires,

but above all else hold and nurture a deep feeling of compassion.

I will be devoted to the task of saving the sacred spark of life in every creature that still carries it.

I will strive to maintain a clear mind, and am willing to hold myself to the highest standards.

It will be my duty to diagnose sufferings and treat disease.

I will not be boastful about my skills, nor driven by greed for material things.

Above all, I will keep an open heart.

As I move on the right path, I will receive great happiness as a reward, without asking for anything in return.


~Adapted from “The Great Physician” by Sun Simiao (581-682)
