Brief information:

Hippocrates of Kos (460 – 370BC) was a well-known Greek physician during the Age of Pericles (Classical Greece). Born on the Greek island of Kos, he is considered as one of the most reputable figures in the history of medicine. His contributions made such outstanding impact to the field that he was therefore attributed as the “Father of Western Medicine”.

Hippocrates was the founder of the “Hippocratic School of Medicine”, an intellectual school that revolutionized medicine in ancient Greece. This institution paved the way for the field to be established as a distinct discipline, and later on, as a profession. The writings of the Corpus Hippocraticum contributed an abundance of knowledge for bio-medical methodology and provided one of the first reflective codes of professional ethics. It is generally believed that majority of the writings in the book came from the actual efforts and ideas of various physicians and authors under his school.
