Based on the writings of Hippocrates, the Greek physician labelled the “father of medicine”, the Hippocratic Oath forms the basis of medical ethics which are still honoured today. Ancient physicians swore to adhere to approved medical practices and to never abuse the knowledge and abilities bestowed upon them. The oath also stated that a physician would never administer poisons, divulge patient information or carry out an abortion, and would refrain from “mischief” and attempting any sexual advances on a patient, regardless of whether they were free or a slave.
