Ecole d’Assas was founded in 1936 as a private further education establishment training physiotherapists and podiatrists. Given the standard of the paramedical courses, the college is monitored by the Ministry for Health on behalf of the State. Ecole d’Assas is approved by the Ile-de-France Regional Council.
Ecole d’Assas has two separate training centres:
- a Physiotherapy Training Centre (IFMK) in Paris (86 places) and one in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (30 places). The Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines centre opened in September 2014. Training provided in both centres is identical.
- a Podiatry Training Centre (IFPP) in Paris (60 places).
- an Occupational Therapy Center (IFE) in Magny-les-Hameaux (30 places). The centre will open in September 2018.
