CRAIC is located in a total area of 1,000 m2 on the fourth floor of the outpatient clinic building in the UANL´s University Hospital. Our daily activities focus on our institution´s core philosophy: medical assistance in our outpatient clinic, research, and teaching.
Our medical services are primarily focused on prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of immuno-allergic diseases through comprehensive patient care for adults and children specializing in respiratory, skin, drugs, food and hymenoptera allergy as well in immunodeficiency disorders. We conduct an annual educational program on asthma and allergic diseases, in which our professors and staff are actively involved, as well as national and international guest professors. For 29 years, this educational program has included medical education courses in these subjects, targeting health professionals, patients, and their families; as well as organizing summer camps for asthmatic children with educational, sport, recreational and research activities.
The postgraduate specialization program in Allergy and Clinical Immunology has been granted for more than 15 years with the Excellence status as a “High Level International Postgraduate Program”, the only one in Mexico fulfilling all high-quality standards of the Science and Technology National Council (CONACYT). Up until 2016, we have more than one hundred graduates in Allergy and Clinical Immunology, with previous training in Pediatrics or Internal Medicine and we actively teach in the School of Medicine´s allergy syllabus for more than one thousand medical students annually.
