Hippocrates

Physician

Born: c. 460 B.C.
Died: 377 B.C.
Birthplace: Island of Cos, Greece
Best known as: Author of the Hippocratic Oath
Hippocrates is perhaps history's most famous physician. By rejecting superstition in favor of scientific observation, by classifying diseases, and by creating a set of moral and professional standards for physicians, he earned the title of "Father of Medicine." He also gave the world the Hippocratic Oath, a code of ethics for physicians which is still taken by graduates at many modern medical schools.
