The purposes of this empiric study, literature review, and analysis are to determine the current prevalence of oath taking in medical schools in North America, to compare the content of the oaths in use to that of the classical Hippocratic Oath, and to document changes in the practice and content during this century. From this review and analysis, we hope to make a case for the value of the Hippocratic tradition.
