http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seventeen_Rules_of_Enjuin - 'You should rescue even such patients as you dislike or hate. You should do virtuous acts, but in such a way that they do not become known to people. To do good deeds secretly is a mark of virtue.'

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath_of_Asaph - 'Do not keep [in your hearts] the vindictiveness of hatred with regard to a sick man'

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath_of_the_Hindu_physician - 'You shall assist Brahmins, venerable persons, poor people, women, ascetics, pious people seeking your assistance, widows and orphans and any one you meet on your errands, as if they were your own relatives. This will be right conduct.'

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Simiao - 'A Great Physician should not pay attention to status, wealth or age; neither should he question whether the particular person is attractive or unattractive, whether he is an enemy or friend, whether he is a Chinese or a foreigner, or finally, whether he is uneducated or educated. He should meet everyone on equal grounds. He should always act as if he were thinking of his close relatives.'

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Declaration_of_Geneva / http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physician%27s_Oath - 'I will not permit considerations of religion, nationality, race, party politics or social standing to intervene between my duty and my patient.'
