The Greeks made great advancements in medicine. Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.) introduced the idea of looking at disease as something that occurred naturally, instead of coming from the gods. He also believed that doctors should observe symptoms to determine how to treat a patient. He wrote over fifty books on the subject. The Hippocratic oath, to do no harm to a patient, is still used in medicine today.
