EnMed Admissions

Engineering Medicine (EnMed) is an innovative engineering medical school option created by Texas A&M University and Houston Methodist Hospital to educate a new kind of physician who will create transformational technology for health care.

The EnMed curriculum is a case-based format with integration of both medicine and engineering content to develop and improve students' clinical reasoning and problem-solving skills through real-world examples.

Eligibility Requirements

  1. A baccalaureate in engineering or computer science from an accredited institution in the U.S. and/or its territories. EnMed will consider other degrees, provided there is evidence of interest and activity or research related to engineering design and/or device innovation.
  2. S. citizenship or U.S. Permanent Residency (Green Card Holders).
  3. Completion of the Prerequisite Courses for medical school before or by the time of matriculation. Depending on the coursework that is lacking, such as the required introductory and advanced biology and chemistry courses, it is advisable to wait to apply until this critical coursework is complete.

Only completed applications are reviewed. The following are the requirements for a complete EnMed application:

  • For Texas residents, submit the Texas Medical & Dental Schools Application Service (TMDSAS) application and fee ($185 flat fee)
  • For Non-Texas residents, submit the TMDSAS Application or the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) application and fee ($170 includes one medical school designation. Additional medical school designations, $41 each).
  • Submit the College of Medicine Secondary Application and fee ($60). Indicate interest in EnMed by checking the EnMed Track option (Item #7).
  • Submit the EnMed Supplemental (provided after indicating interest in the secondary application)
  • Submit three letters of evaluation or a college/university Health Professions Advisory Committee Packet (HPAC)
  • MCAT with no pending scores and not older than five years by time of matriculation
  • Computer-Based Assessment for Sampling Personal Characteristics (The CASPer Test)
  • Official transcripts (sent to TMDSAS or AMCAS if applicable)
  • Copy of permanent resident card, if applicable, sent directly to TMDSAS or AMCAS if non-resident

Qualified applicants must interview to be considered for admission. Interviews are by invitation only. Virtual interviews for the 2020-21 cycle will be conducted on Mondays over a 10-week period between August and January.
