Helping Birmingham Medical and Dental
Graduates and Students
Student Membership of the Sands Cox Charity (SCC)
The SCC aims to provide
information and help to Birmingham Medical and Dental students and graduates.
the means to enable the students of yesterday to help, financially and in other ways, the students of today.
The SCC achieves these aims by
our website and using social media.
producing an annual journal, Aesculapius, available as a glossy journal but also online.
funding elective bursaries, 4 medical and 2 dental, £500 each.
holding an annual meeting with interesting guest speakers and an opportunity for bursary winners to give a formal presentation on their elective experiences, which is then published in Aesculapius.
Graduate members pay £30 a year and, if possible, sign a Gift Aid declaration.
The money raised funds the journal and pays for the student electives and an extra £100 each for presenting at the Annual Meeting and submitting a paper to Aesculapius.
Student members will only pay £5 a year by direct debit until they qualify.
Why should students become SCC members ?
To support an organisation whose key role is to enable graduates to support students.
To enter a communication system which will be there for you when your student email addresses cease to be available shortly after graduating.
To have access to our website, social media sites, the electronic version of Aesculapius and our Annual Meeting.
To enhance your chances of getting a bursary because one medical and one dental bursary will be for SCC student members - provided that the application is good enough to merit receiving a bursary. The number of member bursaries will increase when the number of student members increases.
