The process of teaching learning in medical education is a complex task considering the fact that teachers have to not only impart knowledge but also train the medical students in clinical skills, decision-making, clinical reasoning, etc. A wide range of teaching-learning methods have been employed to deliver theory, practical, and clinical skills. Grand rounds play an important role in keeping the health professionals abreast about the recent developments. In fact, sharing time with the attending doctor can be regarded as one of the best ways to achieve on-the-job training and learning. The emergence of coronavirus disease-2019 pandemic has changed all the dynamics, and there is a definite scope for virtual grand rounds, which will not only continue learning but even ensure the safety of all the attendees. To conclude, grand rounds can be acknowledged as one of the essential modes of teaching-learning in the overall process of delivery of medical education. Thus, all efforts should be taken to rejuvenate the same in those settings where they are not under practice so that students can improve their knowledge and skills.
