Swathy Elangovan: Artist

As a a second-year General Surgery postgraduate at SRM Medical College Hospital & Research Centre in Chennai, India, I am passionately immersed in the art of healing. To me, surgeons are among the most creative spirits, possessing the unique ability to blend science with the artistry of the human form. The operating room is my canvas, where precision meets passion, yet I find an equally profound connection to creativity in moments of solitude, especially on challenging days.

In these quiet interludes, I turn to sketching anatomy diagrams, a practice that not only refines my surgical skills but also brings me peace and joy. I strongly believe that every physician should carve out moments for personal reflection and creative expression. It's in these moments away from the pressures of work that we can recharge and return to our duties with enhanced clarity, empathy, and vigor.
