As high school students are applying to colleges and undergraduate degree programs, the School of Engineering Medicine is preparing for their futures as physicianeers. The E2ENMED Early Assurance Program is a unique program offered to high school seniors or second-year students seeking and pursuing a degree in the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University.
E2ENMED is a highly competitive program that incites students to change the future of medicine and train the next generation of physician engineers, physicianeers. From the start of the application process to the end of their undergraduate career, students are jumping at the chance to become more than a doctor, and more than an engineer. The E2ENMED program offers students to change healthcare, forever.
The program offers two options for admission: A, for incoming Texas A&M Freshman engineering students, and B, current Texas A&M engineering Sophomores. Both options recruit highly qualified individuals that are intent on establishing solutions for the greatest challenges in healthcare. Being competitive and intriguing, the ENMED program invests its time into applicants during their recruitment process and throughout their undergraduate career.
Option A, the recruitment of prospective high school seniors, advances the opportunity of medicine by starting with young, passionate individuals, eager to leave a mark on healthcare. The over-achieving high school seniors are slected from a pool of National Merit Scholars, both semi-finalists and finalists, and the College Board of Hispanic Scholars, African American, Native American, and Rural Recognition. After students apply to a degree program in the College of Engineering, they are encouraged to apply to the E2ENMED program. For those accepted, they must complete and meet the school’s criteria to be admitted into the ENMED program.
Option B, for second-year students who are already enrolled into an undergraduate engineering degree program at Texas A&M University, are welcomed to apply to the E2ENMED program. Engineering students are recruited for their outstanding performance after their first year as an undergraduate student. After applying to the program, students must meet the same criteria as the high school seniors after their undergraduate career to be guaranteed admission into the ENMED program.
The ENMED program is complex, ambitious, intriguing, and passionate about changing medicine and how it is administered. Both current students and prospective students show promise in the medical field, and by converging medicine and engineering together, physicianeers will leave lasting impacts in healthcare. After students’ application and interview processes, the E2ENMED program admits 15 students every year, each one holding a new excitement for medicine.
The School of Engineering Medicine embraces its students who have shown promising futures in engineering and medicine, and looks forward to its first class of E2ENMED students in May 2024.
