With gratitude to God, faith in Christ Jesus, and dependence on the Holy Spirit,
I publicly profess my intent to practice medicine / dentistry for the glory of God.
With humility, I will seek to increase my skills.
I will respect those who teach me and who broaden my knowledge.
In turn, I will freely impart my knowledge and wisdom to others.
With God’s help, I will love those who come to me for healing and comfort.
I will honor and care for each patient as a person made in the image of God, putting aside selfish interests.
With God’s guidance, I will endeavor to be a good steward of my skills and of society’s resources. I will convey God’s love in my relationships with family, friends, and community. I will aspire to reflect God’s mercy in caring for the lonely, the poor, the suffering, and the dying.
With God’s blessing, I will respect the sanctity of human life. I will care for all my patients, rejecting those interventions which either intentionally destroy or actively end the lives of the unborn, the infirm, and the terminally ill.
With God’s grace, I will live according to this profession.
