This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Ancient Civilizations - Key Figures - Hippocrates. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Hippocrates, was born in the island of Cos, Greece. He was an ancient Greek physician who lived during Greece’s Classical period and is traditionally regarded as the father of medicine. It is difficult to isolate the facts of Hippocrates’ life from the later tales told about him or to assess his medicine accurately in the face of centuries of reverence for him as the ideal physician.
About 60 medical writings have survived that bear his name, most of which were not written by him. He has been revered for his ethical standards in medical practice, mainly for the Hippocratic Oath, which, it is suspected, he did not write.
There are only a few contemporary, references to Hippocrates. Hippocrates may have studied medicine with his father. He traveled around Greece training medical students that there are scientific reasons for ailments. Before him, medical conditions were attributed to divine intervention. Hippocrates maintained that all diseases have natural causes. He made diagnoses and prescribed simple treatments like diet, hygiene, and sleep.
Today, Hippocrates still continues to represent the humane, ethical aspects of the medical profession.
