Greek Doctors Renew Their Hippocratic Oath on Kos (video)



Greek and foreign doctors have taken part in a special ceremony on the island of Kos to renew their Hippocratic Oath.

The medics were on the island over the weekend as part of an international conference on health tourism.

Kos is the birthplace of Hippocrates, often called the ‘father of medicine’.

Speaking at the conference, the president of the Global Institute of Greek Doctors, George Patoulis, proposed the creation of a new ‘Hippocrates Cluster’ that would merge health units and clinics all over Greece interested in offering services to medical tourists from around the world.
