It has been an honor to be an integral clinical partner for the vast Aggie family for the past several years. The Houston campus was established in 2014, with the first cohort of students arriving in June 2015, ready to embark upon their clerkship experiences at the No. 1 ranked hospital in Texas, as recognized by U.S. News and World Report.  Since that time, the campus has grown by leaps and bounds with the continued development of the clerkships, as well as an array of fourth-year elective opportunities at Houston Methodist Hospital and many other institutions that make up the Texas Medical Center (TMC).

At Houston Methodist, we believe that innovative education and dedication to teaching the science of translational medicine is essential for training future academic medical leaders. As part of a joint MD/PhD degree program, our institutions provide translational research opportunities at the Houston Methodist Research Institute. In addition, 2019 will usher in the nation’s first medical school track blending medicine and engineering into a four-year Master of Engineering and MD degree through the EnMed program.  This cutting edge program will brand a new type of doctor, the ‘physicianeer’ to address our nation’s demand for more innovative approaches to care delivery and development. Texas A&M has enhanced its commitment to the track through their purchase of an 18-story building in the heart of the TMC, expanding the current A&M footprint.

Houston Methodist remains one of the nation’s leading health systems and academic medical centers with a long legacy of health care innovation, cultivated by investment in medical research and education. Houston Methodist Hospital, the flagship academic hospital for the eight hospital system, is ranked among the country’s top hospitals in eight specialties — more specialties than any other hospital in Texas. It was also ranked No. 1 in the metro area and No. 1 hospital in Texas.

Houston Methodist offers an optimal environment for student researchers and trainee clinicians to hone their skills. Together with the faculty and students of Texas A&M, and the support of the Aggie former student led Houston Aggie Medical Society (HAMS), we continue to strengthen the partnership between our two institutions as we to train the next generation of physician leaders in medicine and research. The training program at the Houston campus will emulate the excellence that already exists in the other campuses and enhance the learning experience through our values and experiences.
