Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) will be remembered as a life changing landmark in the medical history. The changes it brought forth in the life of medical students resemble the two sides of a coin. It made them unlearn the conventional methods of education, patient care and research and learn the newer ways of patient interaction through telemedicine, online classes through web-based platforms and completing their thesis and dissertation through different online modes. This commentary is based on such experiences of a postgraduate resident.
