Hope this helps!

Hippocrates was a Greek physician born in Kos in 460BC. He died in 370BC. Hippocrates made such impactful impression on medical history that his name is still very much associated with medicine today.

  • All newly qualified doctors take what is called a 'Hippocratic Oath'. This oath states the  obligations and proper conduct of doctors.
  • He was one of the first doctors to use 'clinical observation'. This was when a doctor would look at an issue of poor health by using a process of reasoning and observation. He would record the observation, and then decide on the best treatment for that patient.
