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.

"This is a tremendously exciting initiative founded on a sound concept that has been emerging internationally for years. at its core is the understanding that the most effective and efficient solutions to our most daunting health care challenges will come from approaches that integrate all of the sciences and engineering."
