I will listen to each patient’s unique human story. 

I will mind my biases and treat every patient with compassion. 

I will assume the best in others and be kind. 

I will support my colleagues as we join to care for patients. 

I will appreciate my opportunities in this profession and advance them for all who follow. 

I will care for myself as I care for my patients. 

I will forgive myself for my mistakes and learn from them. 

I will strive for excellence while being mindful of my limits and those of medicine.
