Ethics has always been an essential component of medicine. The Hippocratic oath is taken by all physicians as they pass through medical school and start their profession and career. The principle of “first do no harm” is a cornerstone of medical practice in this age of computers and technology. Care of the patient still comes first. The roots of ethics stem from experiential learning, philosophy, and the basic nature of humans to help each other. For survival in hard times, our ancestors found that you can live together or die in solitude. To live together, groups developed maxims and guidelines to govern group behavior and facilitate activities to promote the interests of all.
