SUMMA Pre-Health Conference

Time and Date:

  • February 2, 2019 (Saturday)
  • 8:00 AM - 5:30 PM

The SUMMA Pre-Heath Conference is one of the oldest on the west coast, typically drawing 500 students from the Bay Area and California.

The goal of the SUMMA Conference is to increase the diversity of health professions with a focus on underrepresented minority students. It is designed to increase the number of minorities accepted into medical schools nationwide. The SUMMA Conference achieves these goals by offering a variety of workshops, presentations by key faculty and staff, mock interviews, networking with exhibitors representing medical and health profession schools from across the nation, and opportunities to meet Stanford medical students from similar backgrounds and cultures. The SUMMA Conference is truly a unique experience in which conference attendees receive an in-depth experience of what it takes to enter and succeed in medicine. The conference is ideal for premed students considering medicine as a professional career.

Innovation for Higher Education from the California Chancellor's Office

The Math Performance Success (MPS) Program had been awarded $1.9 Million for the Innovation for Higher Education from the California Chancellor's Office. Funds will be used to expand the MPS STEM pathway which will increase the share of student finishing pre-calculus series (Math 41, 42, 43).


Students are now eligible to enroll directly into a transfer-level math course (Math 10, Math 11, Math 44, or Math 46), thanks to changes in state law and a new policy at De Anza College. If you are planning to self-place in transfer-level math, we recommend the MPS Program (For Math 41 enrollment, please visit the PSME division office).


Award-Winning Success Rates

Nearly everyone who enters the program successfully meets their goal. MPS provides the necessary support for all students to succeed.
