The EnMed program, founded in 2019, is a collaboration between Texas A&M’s School of Engineering Medicine and the state’s top-ranked Houston Methodist Hospital established to transform health care through the development and training of physicianeers, the creation of medical technologies, and translational research.
The EnMed physicianeer is an innovative problem-solving doctor uniquely qualified to address some of health care’s greatest challenges. These graduates receive a Medical Doctorate and Master of Engineering degree focused on the design and implementation of impactful medical technologies in the same four years through a revolutionary curriculum.
EnMed is led by Dean Dr. Roderic I. Pettigrew, founding Director of the National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering.
