Within this initiative, the DIANA Proposal aims to support the design of a new international master's program in Conservation Medicine, a scientific discipline that goes beyond combining human and animal health by emphasizing the conservation of biodiversity and the sustainable use of agriculture and natural resources, in both industrialized and developing countries.

As a final objective, the DIANA Proposal proposes a joint master's degree among all participating educational institutions corresponding to the equivalent of 120 ETCS, 30 per educational entity of the European Union and 30 as a master's final project in collaborating institutions. He Master in Conservation Medicine It will be designed in accordance with the European Qualifications Framework, whose objective is to link the national qualification systems of different countries to a common European framework of reference.

Within the Master in Conservation Medicine, the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) exercises the coordination functions, while the teaching corresponding to our university would be carried out in the facilities of the Instituto de Investigación en Recursos Cinegéticos (IREC – CSIC, UCLM, JCCM) through its different research groups.
