About EnMed

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.

Texas A&M Dean Roderic Pettigrew Inspires Development of a Powerful New MRI by Siemens Healthineers

Health care providers use MRI scanners to diagnose, stage, monitor, and research disease. But what if an MRI could also be used to detect threats early and help prevent severe consequences? A scanner that could see coronary or vascular diseases before they cause a heart attack or stroke, for example, or identify prostate cancer in its earliest stage before a biopsy is done could help maintain health and wellbeing throughout a lifespan.

Maroon Health Clinic
Health care is a fundamental human right, and yet millions of Americans remain uninsured or underinsured. In response to this crisis, many communities have come together to establish free or low-cost health clinics. But what if there was a student-run health clinic on your college campus? One such clinic was started by a group of Texas A&M University medical students who saw a need in their community and took action. Through their hard work and dedication, they are making a difference in their community.
