Summary: Spending some time in primary care practices of other colleagues fulfills the purpose of continuing medical education and sometimes vocational training. It frequently opens up new vistas. After having completed several of such visits in Germany I decided in 2012 to serve as visiting physican in Switzerland and chose a group practice in the canton of St. Gallen. The principal of this practice is Etzel Gysling who is well known beyond his country’s frontiers by publishing the drug bulletin „pharma-kritik“. This report continues a series which started in 2003 in the German Journal of Family Medicine (ZFA) (compilation in [1]).
