Hippocratic Oath, which is the oldest medical oath, has been historically taken by physicians in medical schools in ancient Greece, Persia, and other countries. In this oath, the principle medical ethics have been considered as an obligation for those who graduate as a medical doctor. As the current medical oath in Islamic countries such as Iran is based on Hippocratic Oath, this study sought to compare its different subjects with Quran by providing references in each subject to Quranic Surahs.
As Islam provides comprehensive ethical rules and supports human rights, in almost all cases, the ethical obligations of medical oath are approved and recommended by Quran. Obviously, this study can open a new vision into Muslims and non-Muslims to better understanding of the medical ethics in Islam.
