Hippocrates was a Greek physician who lived in the 5th century BC and is considered one of the most influential figures in the history of medicine. He was the founder of the School of Cos, where he taught his medical knowledge and techniques, and is credited with the Hippocratic Oath, which establishes the ethical principles that govern medical practice to this day. Hippocrates believed in the importance of observation, research, and experimentation in medicine, and his ideas and methods laid the foundation for modern medicine.
