Each day includes morning coffee break and a lunch break. Classes may run late depending on the amount of material to be covered.

We have a few ways in which you can participate: 

  1. Lecture Day

  2. Lecture Day + Cadaver Day

  3. All 3 days = Full Clinic

  4. 'Returning Geeks' can take any clinic again FOR FREE! You just pay for your cadaver feet (1 or 2).
