Why EnMed?

Advancements in technology are transforming health care at a rapid pace. The rate of technological change is faster and more complicated than can be absorbed by the medical workforce. A new type of educational program is needed that prepares professionals with the clinical skills to diagnose symptoms and treat patients, along with an engineering mindset to solve problems, invent new technologies and rapidly move these innovative ideas to practice in patient care. With Texas A&M’s land-grant mission, world-class engineering program, emerging medical sciences and in collaboration with the state’s top-ranked hospital, Texas A&M can lead in solving the most daunting health-related problems of the 21st century.
