Student Clinician's Ceremony 

 

Each spring, second-year medical students moving into their third year of medical school at The Ohio State University participate in the Student Clinician's Ceremony. The annual event recognizes the students' transition into the clinical portion of their programs as an important step towards their entrance into the medical profession. The program includes a group recitation of the Medical School Oath, which expresses the students' commitment to excellence, professionalism, ethical behavior and compassion in ministering to the health and well being of their patients.

The oath reads as follows:

As we enter the medical profession,

We will become members of a larger community working together for the health and well being of our patients and society.

We will strive for clinical excellence, and we will employ our skills with compassion and dignity.

We will use our individual backgrounds and our   personal ethics to enrich all of your interactions but never as a basis for malice or bias.

We will respect the efforts of our mentors and peers, and we will not hesitate to ask for their guidance when needed.

We will honor the privacy of our patients, and we will maintain confidentiality appropriate to the     doctor-patient relationship.

We will remember that to care for our patients, we must attend to our own well being in spirit, mind, and body.

We realize that medical education is a lifelong    commitment that only begins today, and we choose to accept the high standards of honesty and integrity to which society will hold us accountable.
