    The Hippocratic Oath is an oath of nonmalevolence that doctors take. It essentially means that you will not harm others. One example of the Hippocratic Oath is where doctors cannot and will not administer lethal injections in the prison system (this is often done by a non-doctor).

    it is the oath doctors pledge when finishing medical school.

    they generally subscribe to the common ethics of

    1. beneficence- do good

    2. non maleficence- do no harm

    3. autonomy- patient has a say

    4. justice- every patient deserves to be treated
