Considered to be the 'Father of Western Medicine', Hippocrates was an ancient Greek physician and revolutionary who is attributed with first establishing medicine as a practice independent of other fields (such as philosophy) and hence as a profession in its own right. The Hippocratic Oath, representing his principles and ideas around the ethical conduct of practitioners, is still in use today and often recited by students at their graduation from medical school.
