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 only.

  2. Lecture Day + Cadaver Day

  3. All 3 days.

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


as of 2019 we’re changing our clinic days

Please note instead of the FRIDAY-SUNDAY format we are now going to see if SATURDAY-MONDAY works better for our participants.
