WMA, 1948: In a 1989 survey of 126 us medical schools, only three reported usage of the original oath, while thirty-three used the declaration of geneva, sixty-seven used a modified hippocratic oath, four used the prayer of maimonides, one used a covenant, eight used another oath, one used an unknown oath, and two did not use any kind of oath. Seven medical schools did not reply to the survey.
