ABSTRACT
Medicine in ancient Greece flowed from the conquest of lands by Alexander the Great. Seeing that Egyptian medicine was superior to their own, the Greek colonists embraced Egypt's medical technology. Eventhough they embraced Egypt's medical technology, ancient Greece also contributed much to modern medicine. Some of the contributions are the Hippocratic Oath for doctors, study of human anatomy, and treatment of people with mental illness.
