Cornell Revises Hippocratic Oath

Cornell's new version of the Hippocratic Oath apparently resonates with its grads.  It's dropped the inconvenient references in the original to abortion and assisting in suicides, doesn't mention the gods (or god, Greek or otherwise), and Steve Miles (author of a recent study of the original oath, recently reissued in paperback) says it's different enough from the source oath as to not qualify as a revision at all.  Thanks to's blog for this item.  [tm]
