By purchasing Physician Assistant Mentor Online services, I agree to the terms of this Agreement:
PAMO shall provide advice, consulting, and editing services to clients with respect to matters related to pre-physician assistant program advising/ physician assistant program admissions/postgraduate programs. PAMO will provide the specific services purchased by client (collectively, the “Services”).
- Time and Availability
PAMO shall have discretion in selecting the dates and times it performs such consulting and editing services. We will do our best to accommodate the client’s needs regarding date and time, but ultimately it all scheduling is dependent upon the availability of the Mentor. If PAMO client requires more services at any time, PAMO is not obligated to undertake such work. Meeting in person for any service other than PA Shadowing is at the discretion of the Mentor assigned but in no way is this guaranteed. Strictly on a case by case situation when requested by the client.
Payment is due upon signing up for services. Fees are subject to change at any time. Services paid for are valid for one year from the purchase date. No refunds are given for unused services. If a ‘Package Plan’ (Silver Package, Gold Package, or Platinum Package) with PA Shadowing is cancelled after the Shadowing date, a refund will be issued less $200 for the Shadowing service. Although ‘Shadowing’ is a $150 add-on service for the Package Plans, if the Package Plan is cancelled the full fee for PA Shadowing ($200) applies.
