I started as a WSU trained CICU nurse studying for the MCAT at night looking up to the surgical residents. After receiving a master’s degree at Loyola Chicago, I returned to WSU for medical school.
I was attracted to the genuine motivation exhibited by faculty and looked to expand on my committee to Eastern Washington communities. During my time in school, I finished a capstone project building on my 12 years with Camp STIX. I developed a love for the OR and using my hands to assist in fixing others.
I am humbled by the responsibility and privilege I am about to receive to care for my community,” says Stiles.
After training, my wife and I would like to return to Spokane and work with Eastern Washingtonians toward better health.
