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:
Lecture Day only.
Lecture Day + Cadaver Day
All 3 days.
'Returning Geeks' can take any clinic again FOR FREE! You just pay for your cadaver feet (1 or 2).
