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
    (May consider other degrees, such as physics and chemistry, provided there is evidence of interest and activity or research related to engineering design and/or device innovation.)
  2. U.S. citizenship or U.S. Permanent Residency (Green Card Holders)

Application Process

All applicants must complete the following:

  1. TMDSAS application (and required fee)
  2. College of Medicine Secondary Application
    Indicate interest in EnMed by checking the EnMed Program option (item #7 on the Secondary Application)
  3. EnMed Supplemental
  4. Computer-Based Assessment for Sampling Personal Characteristics (The CASPer Test)

Qualified applicants must interview to be considered for admission. Interviews are conducted on Thursdays by invitation at Houston Methodist Hospital over a 7-week period between August and December.

Why EnMed?

EnMed is educating a new kind of doctor with an engineering mindset-a physician engineer, or "physicianeer" — who will invent transformational technology for health care's greatest challenges. It's the nation's first fully-integrated engineering and medical education curriculum accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), and allows graduates to receive both a doctorate of medicine and master's in engineering in four years. While the inaugural class is set to begin in 2019, three students joined the program in 2017 to serve as the pilot class.
