Student Testimonials

"The time spent practicing at Rawlings Circle has offered me the chance to better understand cultural competence. It has given me the ability to recognize my unique cultural journey and see the influences it holds within relationships. With this I am able to understand how to respond to a patient whose values may differ from my own."—Danika Forester

"Each day we are taking steps physically and emotionally towards being pushed to experience and learn. This growth isn’t always a comfortable feeling, as it makes me question myself as well as challenges me to look at the world through a new set of lenses."—Christy Wuthrich

"My experience in Ghana thus far has taught me to appreciate the connection two individuals can have between each other. Even though we may not speak the same language, come from the same cultural backgrounds, or share the same beliefs—we're all human."—Emma Heistad
