This narrative summarizes the reflections of a UK conference exchange experience of four young general practitioners (GPs) from Peru, Portugal, Italy, and Pakistan. This article was written after participating in a RCGP exchange program in October 2016. This consisted of 2 days of observation in a GP practice in Liverpool followed by attendance at the RCGP preconference and annual conference. The exchange was organized by the RCGP Junior International Committee, which links to the Vasco da Gama Movement, a European network of new and future GPs.
