Who We Are
Sands Cox was one of the founding fathers of the Medical School in Birmingham in the middle of the 19th Century. The Society was set up in 1983 in order to enhance communication between graduates, organise meetings and support the education of the under- graduates at the Medical and Dental Schools.
In 2014 The Society became the Sands Cox Charity and the Medical and Dental Schools have become the College of Medical and Dental Sciences.
The Membership has also been expanded to include those with close links to and a strong interest in the old schools and the new college.
The purpose of the Sands Cox Charity is to provide:
