This paper describes new ways and strategies of ortho- pedic resident training and conducting exit exams during this pandemic. <strong>Subjects and Methods: </strong>A retrospective observational study was done in the department of orthopedics over a period of two months during the pandemic at a teaching level hospital in India where orthopedic and non-orthopedic work and academic activities attended by the residents were compared from the data from the preceding two months of the crisis. Various means of conducting the summative exams were also analyzed. A p- value&lt; 0.05 was found to be statically significant. <strong>Results: </strong>Out&nbsp; of 34 residents, thirty-three residents were present in the department along with 12 fellows and three senior residents. Residents were divided into three teams to provide COVID and emergency services. All elective operations and routine out-patient department services were suspended during the pandemic. 27 major orthopedic operations and 38 academic activities were carried out. No significant correlation was found in the academic activities and attendance of the residents during the pandemic and preceding period. The exit exams were also conducted in a novel way with the help of a digital platform. <strong>Conclusion: </strong>The resident training was compensated by interactive sessions on digital platforms.</p> Vivek Singh, Varun Garg, Sunny Chaudhary, Roop Bhushan Kalia, Pradeep Meena, Mohit Dhingra, Pankaj Khandwal, Shobha S Arora Copyright (c) 2021 Author https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ http://aijournals.com/index.php/ajmr/article/view/1904 Sat, 27 Mar 2021 00:00:00 +0000 Primary Nasal Neuroendocrine Tumor: Rare Case Report http://aijournals.com/index.php/ajmr/article/view/1905 <p>Nasal cavity small cell neuroendocrine tumor is an exceptionally rare and violent tumor.
