Class of 2010 Doctoral Convocation and Hooding Ceremony 

 
On June 3, 2010, the OSU College of Medicine Class of 2010, comprised of 200 graduating seniors, participated in the 2010 Doctoral Convocation on Ohio State's campus. The ceremony included the traditional processional and hooding, recognition of outstanding students and faculty, and a recititation of the Hippocratic and Class Oaths.
 
Each entering class has the distinction of generating its own class oath based on the combined experience of itsmembers. 
 
The following oath expresses the combined interests, concerns and commitment of the Class of 2010:
  
CLASS OATH 2010
I swear by the things that are sacred to me, before my family, my friends, my colleagues, my mentors, and my patients, that I will keep the following Oath:
 
I will use my knowledge and training to treat my patients to the best of my ability, with compassion and kindness and humility. I will educate my patients to make the health care decisions that are best for them and, in prescribing treatment, I will respect the cultural and personal beliefs of those entrusted to my care, even when they differ from my own.
 
I will be an advocate for the ill and the weak and will strive to balance my responsibilities to individual patients and to the greater society in promoting the health and well-being of all.
Above all, I will do no harm.
 
I will work to be worthy of the trust my patients place in me.
 
I will never forget my duty to act in their best interests and will not exploit that trust.
 
I will respect the contributions of other professions and treat all members of the health care team with dignity.
 
I will understand my own limitations and will work
continuously to improve my own medical knowledge and
skills, recognizing my commitment to medicine as a
commitment to a lifetime of learning.
 
I will honor the dedication, the wisdom, and the passion of those who have taught me by teaching others the art of medicine with the spirit of curiosity and collaboration that the best of my teachers have shown.

I will treat myself with the same compassion I have for my patients, and will be grateful for the support and encouragement of family and friends, recognizing that to heal others, I must be whole and healthy.
 
If I keep this oath faithfully, may I lead a fulfilling life and enjoy the privilege of practicing medicine.
