Summary of the Book

Medicine – Indispensable profession, inscrutable practices, infinite source of money

Youth – Unassuming profile, unbending morals, untiring tenacity

The medical profession is a noble one. Absolutely. Medical professionals? That is a different story.

Based on real events, Oath of Hippocrates is the story of a medical student who skips his final exams at the risk of rustication, seeking to learn the trade, tricks and treachery incognito. It is the story of every man who seethes and rails at the seeming lack of ethics in the mainstream medical system, the lack of transparency in interactions and the practitioners’ distaste for alternative systems of medicine that may offer succour to a patient. The telling narrative takes the reader through the confrontation of men with collision of values – one of might and one of right, with a cross-country chase culminating in a simmering showdown of wits.

Flip open ... if you are ready to change your perspective on the noblest profession.
