EnMed educates invention-and innovation-minded, problem-solving physician engineers, or “physicianeers,” who will be uniquely qualified to make significant contributions to the transformation of health care through the design and development of innovative medical technologies that address some of health care’s greatest challenges.
In addition to the clinical training provided through the state’s top-ranked Houston Methodist Hospital, EnMed students gain experience contributing to all parts of the innovation process of translating novel medical technologies into real-world applications in the nation’s first fully integrated engineering and medical education curriculum accredited by the LCME. Graduates of EnMed receive both a doctorate of medicine and master’s in engineering in four years.
- A baccalaureate in engineering or computer science from an accredited institution in the U.S. and/or its territories
- Applicants to EnMed who do not hold a baccalaureate degree in engineering from an ABET accredited (or standards-meeting) program may be considered upon completion of prescribed math and engineering leveling courses. These criteria may be fulfilled by a combination of undergraduate and graduate leveling coursework. All prescribed coursework must be completed before being accepted into the program. All leveling courses should be completed with letter grades of “B” or better. Leveling courses may include courses in advanced calculus (differential equations or higher), thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, electricity and magnetism, dynamics and vibrations, circuit system design, signal processing, engineering mechanics, engineering analysis, materials and manufacturing, structure of materials, mechanical measurements, engineering design (mechanical, electrical, chemical design etc.), experimental physics, Newtonian mechanics, computer systems and design, digital circuit design, or other upper/graduate level coursework completed as part of an ABET accredited engineering degree and which does not fulfil requirements for admission to medical school.
- All candidates must provide evidence of interest and activity, or research related to engineering design and/or medical device innovation and entrepreneurship.
- U.S. citizenship or U.S. Permanent Residency (Green Card Holders)
- Prerequisite Courses
