Doctor's Day 1 July - Rebello Proposes New Oath

Coming up in a few days is Doctor's Day, held on 1 July. Hippocrates' oath has become - for most doctors - a mere formality, says Leo Rebello from India and he proposes a new, somewhat extended oath. Rebello's new formulation is intended to put particular emphasis on the opening words of the original oath - primum non nocere or first of all, do no harm!

A contrary voice, but by no means a lonely one, Rebello is a successful "non conventional" medico in India.


This, more comprehensive Oath was drawn by Dr. Leo Rebello in 2003, since Hippocrates Oath is now partly outdated being centuries old.  This revised Oath has been widely circulated, accepted and appreciated.

1st July is celebrated as Doctors Day all over the world. The day usually passes without a whimper.

Many doctors have forgotten their Hippocratic oath or humanism. Therefore, I would like to
administer the following oath to the doctors to serve as a reminder as to how important is their profession.

Doctors to please repeat after me.

I, -------------, do hereby swear on this solemn day that :

I shall NOT prescribe unnecessary medicines and tests to my patients;

I shall NOT give false counseling;

I shall NOT overcharge and accept cuts and gifts;

I shall NOT rape tiny tots with innoculations or vaccinations, for they pollute the blood stream
of small children leading to serious diseases like AIDS, Cancers later in life;

I shall NOT prescribe lethal drugs, like anti-retroviral, chemotherapy, or give ECT to my patients;

I shall NOT be afraid of any authority and fabricate medical records or give false evidence;

I shall NOT exploit students studying under me;

I shall NOT manipulate findings or results to win grants.

I, -------------, further solemnly affirm that :

If I cannot treat a disease, I shall not say that AIDS, cancers, diabetes has no cure. But will tell the patient to try other systems of medicine.

I shall treat health practitioners of other systems with respect and not tell deliberate lies
to prove my importance.

I shall study Holistic healing modalities to increase my knowledge and wisdom.

I shall not even by mistake say that HIV=AIDS=death or cancers cannot be treated.

I shall not frighten my patients with unnecessary comments, opinions or advice.

I still remember what Hippocrates said, namely, "Let diet be your medicine" and shall accordingly prescribe fresh fruits, vegetables and good diet to my patients, rather than tonics, syrups, synthetic multi-vitamins, specially to children.

I shall NOT perform surgery, unless it is absolutely must and will not indulge in rackets like amniocentesis, caesarian section, silicon implant or liposuction.

I shall work to ban the useless and cruel animal experiments in the name of medicine.

I shall participate in periodic workshops, seminars, conferences at my expense or on scholarship (no pharma funding) to educate myself and speak from my conscience if I am called upon to speak or preside.

Finally, I realize and aver that a great responsibility of people's well-being is upon my shoulders and I shall carry on my onerous task with utmost dedication.

This I swear in the name of God on this solemn Doctor's Day and I shall repeat this oath daily lest I forget that I am in a divine profession to heal the world.

Oath written and administered by
Dr. Leo Rebello

The entire society admires the invaluable contribution of the doctors towards curing the human kind and restoring smiles of lakhs of faces.
The efforts towards eradicating pain and sorrows is, indeed, beyond expressing in words...
Thank You Doctor!
