In 2010, Texas A&M College of Medicine was selected as the alpha pilot site for the development of a workshop, a major outreach effort for the AAMC’s Advancing Holistic Review Initiative. As a leader in this field, Texas A&M now helps other medical schools across the United States find ways to implement a holistic review process in their own selection process.

2015 marks the twentieth year that students have provided free health care through Martha’s Clinic to the indigent population of Temple, Texas. Martha’s Clinic was started by two Texas A&M medical students, Eric Wilke and Eric Beshires, who saw a need for better health care for the homeless and indigent population in Central Texas. Through a joint effort of dedicated medical students and Martha's Kitchen, a free student-run clinic for the homeless was established.
