Orals (was: Re: Feedback)

I know the students reading this will thank their lucky stars that they
don't have me for a prof, but I would like to find a way to incorporate
formal oral exams into my courses on medical nutrition therapy.  From time
to time in class I'll do what attending MD's do in med school-go around
the room and ask students questions on the material they should have come
prepared to discuss.  This is affectionately referred to as pimping.  One
time I even put on a lab coat to make the scenario look more realistic. 
(Maybe next time I'll hang a stethoscope around my neck as well.)  In the
clinical setting it's important to be able to think critically on your
feet. Any ideas from the faculty?
