I will prescribe regimen for the good of my patients // according to my ability and my judgement and never do harm to // anyone. To please no one will I prescribe a deadly drug, nor give // advices which may cause death. Nore will I give a woman a pessary to procure abortion. But I will preserve the purity of my // life and my heart. I will not cut for stone, even for patients in // whom the disease is manifest; I will leave this operation to be // performed by practioners (specialists in this art).

Research Facts
Dr. William D. Hay, graduated from Queen’s University: Arts 1914, MA 1918; Faculty of Meds Class of 1921; worked at Queen’s University / Kingston General Hospital as a Pathologist; co-founder of the Kingston Blood Bank, 1942; retired 1957.
From 1941-1970, J. R. Geigy A. G., the Swiss pharmaceutical and chemical company headquartered in Basel worked with leading designers to create a visual vocabulary known as the “Geigy style”. This ‘anonymous’ language was often (not exclusively) represented by white space, the use of Akzidenz-Grotesk type, photographs, stylized graphics or drawings, color contrasts and the use of a grid. Graphic designs created for pharmaceutical and medical supplies packaging.
The Declaration of Geneva (Physician's Oath) was adopted by the General Assembly of the World Medical Association at Geneva in 1948, amended in 1968, 1983, 1994 and editorially revised in 2005 and 2006. It is a declaration of a physician's dedication to the humanitarian goals of medicine, a declaration that was especially important in view of the medical crimes which had just been committed in Nazi Germany. The Declaration of Geneva was intended as a revision of the Hippocratic Oath to a formulation of that oath's moral truths that could be comprehended and acknowledged in a modern way.

Research Facts
Dr. William D. Hay, graduated from Queen’s University: Arts 1914, MA 1918; Faculty of Meds Class of 1921; worked at Queen’s University / Kingston General Hospital as a Pathologist; co-founder of the Kingston Blood Bank, 1942; retired 1957.
Sir William Osler, 1st Baronet, FRS FRCP (July 12, 1849 – December 29, 1919) was a Canadian physician and one of the four founding professors of Johns Hopkins Hospital. Osler created the first residency program for specialty training of physicians, and he was the first to bring medical students out of the lecture hall for bedside clinical training. He has frequently been described as the "Father of Modern Medicine" and one of the "greatest diagnosticians ever to wield a stethoscope". Osler was a person of many interests, who in addition to being a physician, was a bibliophile, historian, author, and renowned practical joker.
Book was published shortly prior to his death; he was age 70.
From the 'Preface to the Eighth edition: In the twenty years that have passed since the publication of the first edition, triennial revisions have appeared regularly, with one exception – to secure protection against an edition pirated in Great Britain, a fifth edition had to be issued not long after the fourth. Comparing the first edition with the present, very little remains of the original work. The essential groundwork has been, as far as possible, my personal experience in hospital and private practice, correlated with the general experience of the profession, as expressed in its literature. To try to keep the book up to date has been a pleasure and an ambition. Adequately to express my appreciation of the generous support accorded by my colleagues is impossible.
