Explanation of some of the words contained in the terms and conditions:

 

What is the membership system?

Is a system that allows its members to take advantage of several educational services offered by the Virtual Medical Academy by subscribing to one of the membership packages available for a fixed fee.

 

Period of the Membership:

The membership period valid from the date of subscription until the full calendar year (365 days).

Membership allows subscribers to benefit from the package they subscribe to.

 

Membership System Feature:

The main advantage of the membership system is the ability to purchase unlimited educational services over an entire year, as well as other benefits according to the package chosen by the subscriber.

The value of the educational services available to you in the membership system will be more than the amount you will pay as a package price. This is an important feature provided by the system to its members.


Basic Service Pillars:

The basic service provided to you at the time of subscription is unlimited access to the content of the Academy library. (courses, lectures, and recorded scientific programs) which are currently in the list below (http://www.medicalacademy.org/portal/vma/classes) or those that we will add in the future in the library without any additional fees.

Also, each package of membership packages has its own features, as well as other features that include all or some of the bundles, including but not limited to “ unlimited access to library content, free online courses and lectures, free certificates, permanent discounts, and special rates. Gifts for colleagues and friends, membership gifts, partner discounts, special invitations to participate in events before the public announcement ... etc”

We announce that all services and other features that are not entitled to access to the library are add-on services and are not included in the subscription fee.

Subscription fees are fixed and no additional charges are required from the member during the subscription period. 

 

Upgrade package:

All members can upgrade the subscription from either the free package to one of the paid packages or from one paid package to higher paid packages. 

When requesting a package upgrade, the fee of the first package must be paid if the member package is the free package, If the member package is the first package, the member must pay the difference between the two packages.

In order to upgrade from the first package (with a fee of 1500 SAR annually), the member must pay the difference between the lower package and the higher package (with a fee of 2700 SAR annually), ie 2700 - 1500 = 1200 SAR with adding free 30 days to the subscription period. Also, Membership cannot be transferred from a higher package to a lower package after 7 days of subscription.
