Hippocrates is considered one of the most significant figures in the history of medicine, and his contributions continue to influence doctors and the practice of medicine today. Hippocrates is significant to doctors because he established the foundations of modern medicine through his emphasis on observation, ethical principles, and the rational study of disease. His contributions to medical ethics and the practice of evidence-based medicine continue to guide physicians in their professional duties and responsibilities.
In many countries, doctors still take variations of the Hippocratic oath, a solemn ethical code for physicians and healthcare professionals. It outlines the moral and professional responsibilities that doctors should uphold in the practice of medicine.
This is a sculpture of Hippocrates. In his hand, he holds a scroll containing the ageless words of the Hippocratic Oath. This is the perfect gift for doctor or a doctor in training to inspire them!
