  • Medical practice in Ancient Greece, like Egypt, was based largely upon religious beliefs.

  • The Ancient Greeks though made major affects in medical knowledge. The works of Hippocrates and his followers led to several scientific facts being recorded for the first time, and perhaps more significantly the work of these philosophers began a tradition of studying the cause of disease rather than looking solely at the symptoms when prescribing a cure.

  • The legacy of the Ancient Greek world on medical practice has been great. Hippocrates theory of the Four Humors was, for a long time, the basis upon which to develop medical reasoning. Like wise the methodology employed by the Greeks has, to a large extent, been retained and modified to form what we now consider to be conventional medicine.
