Hippocrates

Let food be thy medicene
Father of medicine

Hippocrates , was an ancient Greek physician and is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine. He is referred to as the father of western medicine[2][3][4] in recognition of his lasting contributions to the field as the founder of the Hippocratic School of Medicine.

Hippocrates is commonly portrayed as the paragon of the ancient physician, credited with coining the Hippocratic Oath, still relevant and in use today. He is also credited with greatly advancing the systematic study of clinical medicine, summing up the medical knowledge of previous schools, and prescribing practices for physicians through the Hippocratic Corpus and other works.
