"The EnMed program helped me choose A&M as my medical school. I had many long conversations with faculty to decide if a combined approach was best, or if I should just pursue medical school. But when I think about twenty or thirty years down the road, the need for doctors who understand engineering topics isn’t going away. ”

Meeting of the minds
From interprofessional training and education, to innovative programs like Engineering Health and Healthy South Texas, we’re reinventing health professions education. For us, it’s a comprehensive approach to how faculty teach, how students learn and how health care is delivered.
A culture of collaboration
We go beyond putting students from different disciplines in a room together. Here we have an educational system that trains health care leaders in interdisciplinary settings, allowing them to realize their full potential as members of holistic health care teams.
Through simulated experiences, mission trips across the world and groundbreaking programs, we empower the next generation of leaders who won’t accept the status quo.
Highly accomplished clinicians, researchers and distinguished scholars are instrumental in producing graduates who are amply prepared for the realities of an evolving health care landscape. Get to know the dedicated faculty who support our mission.

An ergonomic engineer by trade, Mark Benden, PhD, associate professor at the School of Public Health, is always on the lookout for the latest and greatest innovative solutions to solve some of the most complex public health issues.
