Recipe No. 1: Mystery photo
10 to 15 minutes
To cut your prep time, search medical journals for images you could use. Provide an incentive by entering the submissions with the most correct answers in a drawing for a small prize.
Recipe No. 2: Practice feud
One to three hours, depending on the number of rounds you'll play and the difficulty of the questions you prepare
Toss a coin to determine which team starts first. Ask each player to name one answer to the question. When a player gives a wrong answer, play moves to the other team. Each round takes about 10 minutes and requires about five questions.
Recruit the entire team to create the questions. For example, next time a drug representative gives a presentation, pass out note cards at the end and ask everyone to write two or three questions based on what they learned. It's a great way to review the information you learned and it saves prep time.
