Ever wonder who were the first doctors? Doctoring is a very old profession, tracing back to over 5,000 years ago when shamans would cure people by using spells and prayer.

An early organized group that began to treat the ill were barbers. These early physicians would use sharp tools to lance boils, pull teeth, and bleed patients. This might seem barbaric to us now, but at the time it was considered quite advanced.

Hippocrates, a Greek physician who lived in the 5th century BCE, is considered to be the father of Western medicine. He and his followers, known as the Hippocratic school, believed that diseases were caused by natural, not supernatural, causes. This was a major departure from earlier beliefs, and it allowed for more effective treatments. Hippocrates and his followers also developed the first ethical code for physicians, which is still used in some form today.
