the hippocratic oath


female awesome meme[1/10] female characters who deserve better
“Both of my parents are doctors. It’s all I ever wanted to be growing up, I used to practice the Hippocratic Oath. I was obsessed with it. If anyone was even gonna step on a bug, I would say, ‘Do no harm.’ It’s built into my DNA. Unfortunately, my DNA isn’t what it used to be.”


Get To Know Me Meme: Favorite Female Characters [3/5] Caitlin Snow [The Flash]

“Both of my parents are doctors. It’s all I ever wanted to be. Growing up, I used the Hippocratic Oath. I was obsessed with it. If anyone was gonna step on a bug, I would say, “Do no harm.” It’s built into my DNA.”

As a Pukwudgie Slytherin

this is what is means to be ruled by a selfish heart

Fuck your Hippocratic Oath, your sweet and cuddly characterizations. We are poisoned arrows and venom in our fangs. 

As healers, we are not concerned looks and kind smiles. We are the ones dragging your bodies out of rubble, out of battlefields. We are the ones looking Death in the eye and saying, “fuck off,” as we take your soul and shove it back into your body. 

If someone tries to stop us, we will not hesitate to strike them down. We pick who we want to live and choose who we want to kill. “Do no harm” can blow us.

We will heal you with single-minded determination regardless of consequences. Self-preservation doesn’t mean a thing if we can’t stand to live with ourselves.

Losing someone is a personal failure. 

The blood on our hands is as red as the anger for ourselves. We are angry at not moving faster, angry at not preventing all this in the first place, angry at not knowing better ways to do this.

Later, we will demand better healers to be our mentors and lose ourselves in research and experiments. 

They say it is our ambition, but we feel it as frustration of not being enough.

We do not care with gentleness and compassion. 

We care with harsh words, fierce dedication, and sacrifice to ourselves.

We will laugh at our friends when their silly antics hurt themselves and wipe tears from our eyes as we mock them, but we will also make sure their injuries are properly treated and not neglected. 

Hurt the people we care for, and you will understand why dying is a mercy. 

Our poison will not be quick.

You will suffer where we can see you.

We are hearts, and the heart can be a terrible, wicked thing when it wants to be.

This is what it means to be ruled by a selfish heart.

And if we happen to cook or bake, you can bet it’ll be fucking delicious.

“mercy saved genjis and reapers lives!!” 

1) tbh we only know that she saved genjis life. i dont think the stuff she did to reaper could possibly have been absolutely necessary to keeping him alive, it seems more to me like she was experimenting and used him as a way to test something new. which. is exactly why i joke that she probably never took the hippocratic oath. so like it seems like mercy ruined gabriels life and thats why i dont like her

2) she saved genji and yeah hes okay now but do we even know if he had any say in what was done to him?? probably not. this goes for reaper too and thats why i dont like mercy part 2


Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humility and awareness of my own frailty. - The Doctors’ Hippocratic Oath


Sebastian Stan as Dr. Chris Beck in Ridley Scott’s The Martian

Dr. Beck graduated cum laude from the Yale School of Medicine where he was also a recipient of the Norma Bailey Berniker Prize, awarded to graduating students that best exemplify the disciplines and precepts of the Hippocratic Oath. Also served as a captain in the USAF Reserve.

I’m rewatching Into Darkness, and Pike is giving Kirk the dressing-down of his life, accusing him of “using blind luck to justify playing God!” and oh my word what would Pike say if he was alive long enough to hear about McCoy bringing Kirk back from the dead??

Like McCoy was this close to getting a dressing-down for smuggling Kirk onboard in the first film, and here he’s violated his Hippocratic Oath (”I will not play at God”), again for Kirk.

I think that Pike would gladly give McCoy the worst lecture of the doctor’s entire life, and then buy him a drink because somebody’s gotta watch out for that kid, and Pike’s not going to be around forever.

Jim Kirk saved the Enterprise when he wasn’t even supposed to be there but Bones was the one who got him on the ship in the first place

Jim Kirk sacrificed his life for the Enterprise but Bones broke his hippocratic oath and brought Jim back from the dead

So don’t you dare tell me that Leonard Horatio McCoy is not important, because he’s always been one step behind Jim Kirk and he would never give up on him

Jim Kirk is the hero who saves everyone. But Bones is the man that saves the hero when no one else can

  • Ob start of s1:
  • Delphine: Aldous cosima made a pass at me, and I am 100% straight #nohomo
  • Ob S4:
  • Delphine: I must take off my clothes and lay with her
  • Everyone: That's not actually necessary
  • Everyone: no seriously you don't need to and there's this bad guy who won't like it

I’m not sure if meeting R!Mercy would turn him into an idealist, since she’s on the cynical side, and certainly does not adherence to some basic medical tenants, like the Hippocratic Oath, but she’d certainly make an impression. Considering the troubled nature of Australia, I’m sure she’d have stopped through there at some point, so it wouldn’t be unheard of for them to meet. 

I really like the idea of Mei succumbing . I mean, her story is so, so dark as is. I mean, imagine being trapped, seemingly abandoned, your friends and colleagues wasting away around you with a very hard limit on how much longer you can last–that Mei seems so sweet and well-adjusted is pretty incredible. Now that I think about it, it’s a wonder she doesn’t resent Overwatch more–because as far as she can tell, all her friends are dead because they abandoned them. It’s easy to imagine her emerging from cryostasis a very different person than she is in canon.

Roadhog’s still pretty firmly up in the air, though! He’s kind of mysterious, so it’s difficult to know who he is enough to change it haha


Dr. Chris Beck, flight surgeon for Ares III, graduated cum laude from the Yale School of Medicine. He was also a recipient of the Norma Bailey Berniker Prize, awarded to graduating students that best exemplify the disciplines and precepts of the Hippocratic Oath. 

As Captain of the United States Air Force Reserve, Dr. Beck completed extensive training in aerospace medicine. His record of accomplishment includes the Air Force Commendation Medal and the Meritorious Service Medal.

Since joining NASA, Chris Beck has made two trips to the SpaceX Station and completed five spacewalks (EVAs). He also furthered his training with a master’s degree in biomedical sciences and has published numerous journal pieces in collaboration with the National Space Biomedical Research Institute. His research has focused on musculoskeletal alterations and the affects of deep space travel. 

For the upcoming mission to Mars, he will serve as the crew’s EVA specialist and biologist in addition to his flight surgeon duties. 


Simon Pegg Talked About The Deleted Line(Or Scene) Of Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy (1:09)

  We had a thread about Karl’s character, Bones, being reluctant to pick up a weapon, cause he’s a doctor, obviously, he’s not a soldier. When it’s called upon him to actually pick up a gun and he questions that. There was a nice line about ‘any fool can pull a trigger.’ But when in the process of the film been squeezed, it was lost. which was a shame, cause I like that. Karl brought it up, Bones is a life giver, not a life taker. And that would actually……wouldn’t tally with his Hippocratic Oath. 

 (I was SO SAD about the lost of this scene. Really. This could have been the great development to the character. )
