The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every facet of medicine, including anesthesiology. The purpose of this article is to enumerate the possible effects of global lockdown on the education, research, and training of postgraduates of different grades, and to discuss the measures which need to be enacted on to mitigate the impact. This includes innovating and adapting to newer modalities of teaching and training, modifications in research and conduct of examination, and other resources required in rebuilding the losses trainees had in their medical education.
