00:00:05.405 --> 00:00:07.074 align:middle line:85% position:48% size:48%
I swear to fulfill,
00:00:07.074 --> 00:00:10.444 align:middle line:79% position:50% size:70%
to the best of my ability
and judgement, this promise:
00:00:12.012 --> 00:00:14.615 align:middle line:79% position:46% size:68%
I will respect the hard-won
00:00:14.615 --> 00:00:17.651 align:middle line:79% position:50% size:75%
of those before me,
and gladly share my knowledge.
00:00:19.586 --> 00:00:22.289 align:middle line:79% position:46% size:68%
I will use everything in my
power to help the sick.
00:00:23.423 --> 00:00:25.592 align:middle line:79% position:50% size:70%
I will not be ashamed to say
"I don't know."
00:00:26.159 --> 00:00:28.195 align:middle line:79% position:50% size:55%
nor will I fail to ask
00:00:28.195 --> 00:00:29.529 align:middle line:85% position:50% size:65%
when the skills of another
00:00:29.529 --> 00:00:31.298 align:middle line:79% position:47% size:63%
for a patient's recovery.
00:00:32.099 --> 00:00:34.635 align:middle line:79% position:50% size:65%
Most especially I will act
00:00:34.635 --> 00:00:36.203 align:middle line:85% position:45% size:73%
in matters of life and death.
00:00:37.337 --> 00:00:40.140 align:middle line:79% position:45% size:73%
I will remember that I do not
treat a fever chart,
00:00:40.140 --> 00:00:42.643 align:middle line:79% position:50% size:55%
or a cancerous growth,
but a human being.
00:00:44.244 --> 00:00:45.913 align:middle line:85% position:50% size:70%
May I always act to preserve
00:00:45.913 --> 00:00:48.282 align:middle line:79% position:47% size:53%
the finest traditions
of my calling
00:00:48.282 --> 00:00:51.418 align:middle line:79% position:47% size:63%
and may I long experience
the joy of healing
00:00:51.418 --> 00:00:53.487 align:middle line:85% position:47% size:58%
those who seek my help.
