Additional Information

Charles Christian (“Chris”) Anderson began his clinical work in the field of Pediatric Electrophysiology in 2002 in Spokane, where he continues to practice.

Chris took on a faculty appointment with WSU’s Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, where he initially served as the Cardiovascular System Director for the first 3 years of the college’s M.D. Program beginning in 2016, then began a larger full-time role of Pediatric Clinical Education Director in 2018. Chris also serves his community in other capacities, including as Medical Director for Project ADAM Inland Northwest, an affiliate of a national organization committed to prevention of sudden death in our schools, and as co-chair of the Medical Education Committee for the Spokane County Medical Society.

Chris’ clinical interests include Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, cardiac ion channel diseases, sudden death prevention, and nonfluoroscopic imaging for catheter ablation.
