SUMMA Pre-Health Conference

Time and Date:

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


  • Stanford University

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.

MPS pathway

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 students finishing pre-calculus series (Math 41, 42, 43).

The U.S. will have over 1 million jobs by 2018 in STEM fields but only 16% STEM degrees will be awarded to U.S. college students.

 De Anza College is dedicated to minimizing this gap and increasing the recruitment of students into STEM fields.
