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.
Texas A&M and Houston Methodist Hospital will continue development of unique, four-year engineering medicine degree program.
Engineering Medicine (EnMed), Texas A&M University’s innovative engineering medicine track at Houston Methodist Hospital in Houston, is now included in the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) accreditation of the Texas A&M College of Medicine’s Doctor of Medicine (MD) program. This approval allows the program to begin recruiting the inaugural class of students, set to matriculate in July 2019.
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.
