The Institute of Medical Sciences was established by the Ordinance No. 47/2015 of Jan Kochanowski University President of June 22nd, 2015.
On September 30, 2014, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education authorized the Faculty of Health Sciences to conduct long-cycle master studies of the practical profile in Medicine.
The Institute comprises:
Additionally, in the first two semesters, our students undertake the study of anatomy using cadavers under the close supervision of the anatomy demonstrators. This practical hands-on experience enhances and broadens students’ knowledge and understanding of clinically applied anatomy. The term Clinical Base of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is used by the UJK Medicine School to describe hospitals and general practices within the Świętokrzyskie Region where our medical students complete the majority of their clinical training.
Those clinics and clinical departments with significant experience in patient care and a wide range of medical services have a high potential for growth. In recent years, there has been much development of the Regional Hospital, the Świętokrzyskie Cardiology Center with Cardiac Surgery Clinic and the Świętokrzyskie Cancer Center. The new Regional Children's Hospital has been completed, with a modern clinical infrastructure. On the basis of these units, the university clinics have been established.

Library building is not only characterised by a modern external architecture but it is also unique thanks to the interesting and functional architectural solutions inside. Each of the four-storey building seems to have a slightly different spatial layout and a different function.
Both the academic staff and the students of the Department are provided with electronic resources, available not only via the network but also through physical medium. These facilities consist of: Polish Medical Bibliography:
That database is created by The Central Medical Library. It records Polish scientific literature, clinical and professional one in the field of medicine and related science as well as publications preoccupied with the organization of health protection and popular literature in the field of health education.
The University Library is responsible for providing information about monographs and unpublished doctoral theses as well as postdoctoral work included in GBL collections. Moreover, the summaries of documents both in Polish and English language have been introduced since 1991 year. The Department of Scientific Information in the University Library allows the access to PBLek in DVD version. Apart from that, the library has purchased the permission to use on-line version. Such access is possible through any computer running in the network of UJK (http://www.gbl.waw.pl/ipblb.html). A wide range of search is obtainable on the website, for instance: by means of password, author, institution, city, conference and many others, which make it considerably easier to find either suitable article or symposium.
Moreover, three scanners are available to the readers (ie. Environmental Photocopying) that enable to copy necessary materials very quickly and save them as a PDF or JPEG for their own storage media (USB flash drive). Unmanned Print Center seems to operate in the library as well. It provides the possiblity to copy and scan on the basis of electronic student card, employee card or library card.
In order to enable readers to borrow books independently in the area of free access to monographs, 2 devices for self-borrowing (self-check machines) have been installed on the first floor. Furthermore, 10 working places have been prepared for disabled people.
Electronic versions of magazines
The university library pays for the access to EBSCO databases obtainable in the framework of foundation’s consortium eIFL. PFBN in Poznan is said to be its Polish coordinator. The project allows access to both the journals and other documents in electronic version. All computers within the UJK network enable the students to enter a considered database.
