Offer of IREC training courses for the academic year 2021-2022

    Emerging zoonoses, monitoring, management and research of wildlife and One Health are the central axes of a training offer aimed at the conservation of biodiversity and sustainable hunting management.


    The arrival of autumn marks the beginning of a new academic year at the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), and with it, the organization and coordination of a teaching offer in the form of complementary training courses.

    At the Instituto de Investigación en Recursos Cinegéticos (IREC – CSIC, UCLM, JCCM) We are pleased to report on the different training activities that we propose for the start of the 2021-2022 academic year:

    • 2nd session of the Conference on Emerging Zoonoses, Environment and Global Health. The session will take place on October 15, 2021 virtually (remotely) and attendance is free. These conferences are recognized of Health Interest by the Institute of Health Sciences (ICS). In the registration reservation, it must be indicated if the first session of the conference was attended, which took place on April 28, 2021.
    • Master's Degree in Basic and Applied Research in Game Resources (MUIBARC). The general objective of this master's degree, of 60 ECTS, face-to-face (Ciudad Real) and a teaching program compatible with work activity, is the training of graduates capable of carrying out scientific research tasks in the field of wildlife management and conservation and biodiversity, including species of hunting interest. The MUIBARC starts its XIII edition on October 18, 2021. There are still some places available with immediate direct enrollment.
    • Wildlife Monitoring Course: Citizen Science Applications. This course, of 1 ECTS, will be taught on November 5 and 6, 2021 in mixed modality (face-to-face in Ciudad Real and virtual). Aimed at students and professionals related to the environment and the management of wildlife and its conservation, this course aims to provide the fundamentals and scientifically tested techniques applied to the monitoring of wildlife populations, particularly in the knowledge and control of emerging diseases, some of great social impact such as zoonoses.
    • Own course on Epidemiology and Control of Diseases Shared with Wild Fauna. With 12 ECTS credits, this course addresses in depth and comprehensively a particularly important aspect for animal health, such as diseases that are under control or in the process of being controlled in livestock and that nevertheless have wild reservoirs. Wildlife is at the origin of most of the emerging zoonoses, and shared diseases are important in conservation, so this course allows you to acquire specialized training in the field of Epidemiology and the control of shared diseases in the interface between man, his livestock and wildlife. The course is taught in coordination with the MUIBARC between November 22 and 26, 2021 and March 21 and 25, 2022.

    Emerging zoonoses, monitoring, management and research of wildlife and One Health are the central axes of a training offer aimed at the conservation of biodiversity and sustainable hunting management.
