The Jupiter Hand Forum is a continuing medical education (CME) course for surgeons with an interest in hand and upper extremity surgery, particularly those involved in teaching, research and writing. The course is also appropriate for hand therapists, surgical trainees, and any health care providers who provide care for disorders of the hand and upper limb. Each year, the Forum offers registrants interactive learning formats, including debates, Q&A sessions, case presentations, didactic lectures and group discussions. The course reinforces scientific methods and systematic approaches with a goal of improving students' specialized competencies and clinical approach in order to optimize hand and arm care globally.
