When Dr. Sean Stout started college, he intended to be a physicist. Two years as a missionary in Japan led to a change of heart, as he discovered that he enjoyed getting to work with and help people. He knew he wouldn’t get much of that as a physicist. He switched his studies to the medical field, looking forward to the challenge, excitement, and growth such a career would provide. He has never regretted that decision.
He was raised in the northwest and attended BYU and then the University of Utah for medical school. He completed his residency at Memorial Hospital in South Bend, Indiana. He returned home to practice family medicine at McChord Air Force Base before leaving the military.
He and his wife, along with their five children, are enjoying civilian life. They are active volunteers with PTA and the Boy Scouts.
