|Just another friendly face
in the OR at Sacred Heart
Becky Scheid, CST/RST, M.Ed.
Since my graduation from SCC's Surgical
Technology program in 1987, I have been employed at Sacred Heart Medical Center in the
main OR. I am considered a generalist in the OR and continue to practice my skills and stay
updated in the field as well as in new technologies.
I began working as an instructor at SCC in the fall of 1990. My interest in teaching
began as a preceptor (clinical instructor) shortly after my graduation. Since I began my teaching
career, I have also continued my education. I
completed my A.A. from Spokane Community College in 1997 and went on to complete my B.A. from Eastern
Washington University in June of 2005. I completed the requirements for
the Masters of Education degree at EWU and graduated with three other Allied Health faculty
members in June of 2010.
I have been involved with the Association of Surgical Technologists at both local and
national levels as a resource person and committee member (LCC-ERC). I have maintained my
national certification since I acquired it in October of 1987.
Contact me with any questions about surgery or
the Surgical Technology program.

Since the beginning of our relationship with Osaka Colleges of High
Technology in Osaka, Japan, the faculty, staff and students have had a
chance to work with hundreds of Japanese students in a three-day
exchange program here on our campus. Most of the coordinators have been
given the chance to visit our sister college for a one- to two-week
exchange to discuss our programs and and their place in the U.S. health
