As we begin our
careers as health care professionals, Chiropractors take the following
oath. We hold this oath, and that for which it stands, dear to our
hearts, as a foundation for our lives, our professions and the care of
those who seek our help.
I do hereby affirm before God and these assembled witnesses that I will keep this
oath and stipulation:
To hold in esteem and respect those who taught me this chiropractic healing art; to follow the methods of
treatment which according to my ability and judgment I consider for the benefit of my patients; to abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous; to stand ready at all times to serve humanity without distinction of race,
creed or color.
With purity I will pass my life and practice my art; I will at all times consider the patients under my care as of
supreme importance; I will not spare myself in rendering them the help which I have been taught to give by my
alma mater; I will keep inviolate all things revealed to me as a physician.
While I continue to keep this oath unviolated, may it be granted to me to enjoy life
and the practice of the chiropractic healing art; respected by all people at all times.
