Be it pledged as an Emergency Medical
Technician, I will honor the physical and judicial
laws of God and man. I will follow that regimen
which, according to my ability and judgment, I consider
for the benefit of my patients and abstain from
whatever is deleterious and mischievous, nor shall
I suggest any such counsel. Into whatever home I
enter, I will go into them for the benefit of only
the sick and injured, never revealing what I see
or hear in the lives of men.
I shall also share my medical knowledge with those
who may benefit from what I have learned. I will
serve unselfishly and continuously in order to help
make a better world for all mankind.
While I continue to keep this oath unviolated, may
it be granted to me to enjoy life, and the practice
of the art, respected by all men, in all times.
Should I trespass or violate this oath, may the
reverse be my lot. So help me God.
