Victorian Hippocratic Oath

Setting: Victorian England, circa 1870
Searched: "Hippocratic oath," "Versions of Hippocratic oath," et cetera.  Have found no translations earlier than 1943, except for a sixteenth century translation into Latin.

In a fanfiction I am working on, one of the main characters is a doctor, educated at Oxford.  Would he likely have sworn the Hippocratic Oath and, if he would have, what text would he have used?
