Medical education is witnessing severe disruption worldwide due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. But at the same time, it is important to provide continuity of teaching and timely certification assessment.

In addition to creating case repository for single system cases, we included geriatric cases with multiple combination of geriatric syndromes. The examinees were assessed by the external examiners virtually through a video conferencing platform. The end results were well appreciated by all key stake holders.
