The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has accounted for a significant disruption in each and every sector, including medical education. However, to avoid interruption in learning, all the medical colleges have adopted one or the other form of online teaching–learning and assessment to benefit the students. After a wait of more than 8 months, it was decided by the Indian government authorities that all the medical colleges should re-open from December 2020 onward. The regulatory body has proposed a framework and instructed the medical colleges to delay the summative assessments by 2–3 months, so that students are not deprived of learning opportunities, especially pertaining to the practical and clinical interactions. In conclusion, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a major disruption in the effective delivery of medical education in the entire nation. Nevertheless, it is our responsibility to utilize the available time and focus more on teaching practical and clinical skills to benefit the students to the optimal extent.
