Ivala joins with VIN to bring students, interns, academics & VIN members free 3D content
ivalalearn8th September 2016
There's been a long silence from us - my apologies for that. Our energy has been wholly devoted to achieving the following:
We are extremely proud to have joined forces with the Veterinary Information Network ('VIN'), meaning our 3D content is now COMPLETELY FREE for all students, interns, residents, academics and VIN members, globally.
What is VIN?
The Veterinary Information Network is the world's first, largest and best online veterinary community. Having been around for 25 years, it hosts a wealth of knowledge. The VIN message boards let you post questions and receive help from the VIN consultants and editors, as well as other VINners. The vast database of literature, calculators and tools help you with both the clinical and professional aspects of being a student & veterinarian. But much more than that, it's a place where colleagues help each other and nurture growth, in a supportive environment.
Why has IVALA joined VIN?
I (Taimur - founder) have been a member of VIN since my years as a Bristol veterinary undergrad. I credit VIN with playing a significant role in shaping me into the confident veterinarian I am today. VIN is the ONLY company I considered such a relationship with, and I'm extremely happy that we've managed to accomplish this. I know that by combining Ivala's resources with VIN's, we've created a powerful symbiosis that can more effectively improve understanding and confidence amongst veterinary learners. Furthermore, VIN offers the most financially limited, students, free accounts for the entirety of their studies globally. It's a huge win to be able to offer this content irrespective of a students financial situation.
I'm a student, intern, resident, academic or VIN member. What next?
Please cancel your account at ivalalearn (Login -> 'My Account' -> 'Cancel Account') & sign up at VIN (signup link here). There is NO cost to signing up, all you'll need is to be able to prove that you're a student, intern, resident or educator at an eligible Institution (be sure to use your institutional email address when joining). Your membership will be free for as long as you maintain your academic status.
I’m a student, intern, resident or VIN member and I’ve already paid for an annual subscription at ivalalearn
We’re offering the following forms of reimbursement if you’ve signed up for an ANNUAL subscription as a way of saying thank you for placing your faith in us =):
- If you signed up for an annual subscription within the past 2 months -> full refund
- If you signed up for an annual subscription over 2 months ago -> pro rata’d Amazon voucher up to a maximum of £20 or the equivalent.
To apply, you need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your VIN member number (found under MyVIN -> Profile) to claim this, BEFORE THE 30st SEPTEMBER. We cannot offer anything after this date.
I'm a veterinarian and I’m already a VIN member, where should I get access?
Please cancel your account at ivalalearn & sign in to your normal VIN account. Ivala content can currently be found at this link www.vin.com/Members/3dlearning. There is also a link in the VINdex (CTRL-E from any VIN page or from the link at the top right of all VIN pages). The IVALA 3D content is available to you as part of your normal VIN subscription.
I’m a veterinarian that isn’t a member of VIN.com. If I sign up at VIN will I get access to the 3D content too, or is it only for existing members?
Yes, you will have access too, it is for current and future VIN subscribers as well. You can start a 30-day free trial here.
I'm a veterinarian and I’d like to access the 3D content without signing up at VIN, - how can I do this?
We think you’ll get a huge amount out of a VIN membership. If that option isn’t for you, we're continuing to offer our 3D content here at ivalalearn.com. Our subscriptions are annual and by signing up you get access to all of our 3D content for the entire year. You will be charged once yearly until you cancel your subscription (you can do this any time).
How can I cancel my account at ivalalearn?
Login -> ‘My Account’ -> ‘Cancel account’.
Is there any difference between the 3D content at ivalalearn.com and VIN.com?
No, we have exactly the same 3D content at both sites.
What does this mean for ivalalearn?
We’re still here & it’s business as usual. www.ivalalearn.com will continue to exist, and we’re going to continue bringing you the same cutting-edge veterinary training content both at VIN & ivalalearn.
