enter image description here The World Medical Association responded to Nazi medical atrocities not by reasserting the time-tested Hippocratic oath, but by asserting a new modern oath, subject to change every 10 years. Source: Freedom2Care

Background

While researching the topic of medical ethics in relation to the altruistic nature of the Hippocratic Oath juxtaposed with euthanasia (Aktion T4), compulsory sterilizations, human experimentation and mass murder performed by physicians in the Third Reich (I hesitate to say Nazi Doctors as so many do, because not all who participated in these barbaric actions were actually SS nor even Nazi party members, though many of course were), I came upon this interesting piece of information in the Wiki article on the Oath:

In Germany during the Third Reich, medical students did not take the Hippocratic Oath, although they knew the ethic of "nil nocere" — do no harm.

While there have been many versions of the Hippocratic Oath, and indeed some modern medical societies and institutions administer completely different oaths governing ethical behavior, I have been unable to find a text of the Oath used in Nazi Germany which replaced the Hippocratic Oath during those years – if indeed any oath at all was administered.


Question

Was there a custom Third Reich medical oath? If so, what is the text of that oath (preferably in English)? Or was there no oath at all?
