First and foremost, I will conduct myself in a manner that coincides with the Hippocratic Oath in commitment to primum non nocere. I recognize that taking care of patients is an honor and privilege. I will approach all patients with cultural sensitivity toward their backgrounds. I will guide my actions with integrity, accountability, selflessness, and honesty. I will abide by principles of medical ethics-nonmaleficence, autonomy, confidentiality, beneficence, informed consent, and conflicts of interest. I will strive to provide the absolute best care to my patients by listening, constantly learning, and asking for assistance when needed. I will approach my work with pride and a positive attitude. Finally, I will be an effective member of the health care team; I will treat my supervisors, colleagues, trainees, and support staff respectfully.
