In accordance with the law of nature, that law which God has prescribed to all men;  and in consequence of my dedication to getting the sick well by the application of that law, I promise and swear to keep, to the best of my ability and judgement, the following oath:

I will observe and practice every acknowledged rule of professional conduct in relation with my profession, my patient, my colleague, and myself.

I will keep an open mind regarding the progress of my profession, provided that these progressions shall be confined \within the boundaries of the chiropractic science, philosophy, and art.

I will serve my patient to the best of my ability, violating neither his confidences nor his or her dignity, and in my association with patients I shall not violate that which is moral and right.

I shall regard and refer to my fellow chiropractor with honor, giving credit where it is due.

I shall improve my knowledge and skill, firm in my resolution to justify the responsibility which the degree of Doctor of Chiropractor symbolizes and imposes.

To all this, I pledge myself, knowing these ideals are prescribed by the dictates of reason alone.
