The Hippocratic oath is a universal code attributed to the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates who we all know as the Father of Medicine. Throughout the ages it has served as a guide for medical professionals to conduct their careers by. It is a symbol of a collective moral and ethical promise from us doctors who are united in a singular purpose to bring healing to our patients.

The oath ceremony was also attended by Pro Chancellor Prof HN Verma, Vice Chancellor, Prof RL Raina, Executive director Dr Preeti Bakshi, Principal and Medical Superintendent and all the HODs of various departments of the Medical college.
