The Hippocratic Oath is an oath historically taken by physicians, physician assistants' and other healthcare professionals swearing to practice medicine ethically and honestly. It is widely believed to have been written by Hippocrates, often regarded as the father of western medicine. It requires a new physician to swear upon a number of healing gods that he will uphold a number of professional ethical standards.
Hippocrates invented the medical record, theorized the need to rationally observe patients, taking note and transcribing the appearance and symptoms, and introduced for the first time, the concepts of diagnosis and prognosis. It is under these theories that the Medical School of Salerno is founded, the first major medical institution in Europe during the Middle Ages (eleventh century), regarded by many as the forerunner of the modern university.
