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 training and development of “Physicianeers.”
Located in the Texas Medical Center, EnMed features a revolutionary medical education program where students receive medical doctorates and master of engineering degrees focused on the design and implementation of medical technologies in the same four years.
Graduates of EnMed will be early adopters of transformational technologies, maintain a unique vigilance for opportunities to innovate during their clinical practice, and possess real-world experience developing innovative medical technologies acquired through ‘innovation rotations’ with EnMed researchers, collaborators, and industry partners, as well as, through the development of their own unique ideas.
To develop a new healthcare professional, trained to be an exceptional physician who is also equipped to invent practical solutions to healthcare problems through the convergence of engineering and medicine. Such innovators will be Physicianeers.
ENMED graduates will uniquely help to transform healthcare as Physicianeers. This will be achieved through convergence born innovations that improve the understanding and treatment of disease.
