- "I swear by Apollo the healer, by Aesculapius, by Health and all the powers of healing..." (TNG: "All Good Things...")
The oath was included in the EMH programming. When given the opportunity to kill Unferth in the holodeck, The Doctor told him that the only reason that he wasn't going to kill him was because he had "taken an oath to do no harm." (VOY: "Heroes and Demons") He would later give this as the reason he could not perform the procedure to separate Tuvix in 2372. (VOY: "Tuvix")
- "I swear this oath by Apollo physician, by Aesculapius, by Health, and by all the gods and goddesses: In whatsoever place that I enter I will enter to help the sick and heal the injured, and I will do no harm." (VOY: "Darkling")
In 2377, when his program was stolen by Gar and sold to Chellick, the Jye administrator of a floating hospital on the Dinaali homeworld, The Doctor, activated as Gar and Chellick negotiated over his price, angrily refused to provide his services to "common thieves" - but when victims of a mining accident were brought in seconds later, The Doctor, unable to simply stand and watch, began to treat a seriously injured miner, informing a surprised Chellick that, fortunately for the patient, he was programmed to obey the Hippocratic Oath. (VOY: "Critical Care")
