All student members of the DVSE (May 2019: 60 members).

The Young Forum was founded by students and has been run by students since then. It represents the interests of the student members of the DVSE with the intention to learn and gain experience with scientific methods, to teach the clinical basics in shoulder and elbow surgery and to support its members in their career planning.
The Young Forum offers its members the opportunity to actively participate in the DVSE, to network with other students, residents, and experienced shoulder and elbow surgeons. Furthermore, student members are invited to participate in events of the Young Forum, to attend workshops, and to participate in clinical and scientific projects of the DVSE.
