This article aims to shed light on the management that was taken by the King Saud Bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences to accommodate the immediate needs for online curriculum delivery, in response to the total lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic. We have described the process done, actions implemented, and challenges faced to manage the curriculum delivery during the pandemic and to plan the subsequent year curriculum delivery. Effective management will be enhanced by focused faculty development, curriculum management, assessment planning, and technical support. We believe that the management done can be taken as a model in similar situations where sudden online curriculum delivery is deemed necessary. Further audit on the effectiveness and implication of these actions is required after the end of the pandemic.
