School of Engineering Medicine | Texas A&M University
EnMed is a tripartite collaboration between Texas A&M’s College of Engineering, School of Medicine and the state’s top-ranked Houston Methodist Hospital established to transform healthcare through translational interdisciplinary research, the development of medical technologies, and the development and training of “Physicianeers.”
The EnMed Physicianeer is a new kind of problem-solving doctor uniquely qualified to address some of healthcare’s greatest challenges. These graduates receive a medical doctorate and master of engineering degree focused on the design and implementation of medical technologies in the same four years through a revolutionary integrated curriculum.
ENMED is led by Dean Dr. Roderic I. Pettigrew, founding Director of the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.
