Creating the Future of Health
EnMed is an innovative engineering medical school option created by Texas A&M University and Houston Methodist Hospital to educate a new kind of physician who will create transformational technology for health care.
“EnMed will constitute a living crucible of scientific discovery and technological innovation to transform the practice of medicine.”
Medicine is not just about biology; it requires technology development.

EnMed students will be expected to invent something transformational before graduating. These innovators, “physicianeers,” will radically change the way that health care is delivered.
