Association of Clinical Excellence (ACE)
ACE was founded in 2015 by two Physical Therapists (PTs), Doug Adams and Ari Kaplan, in response to a growing need in the field of Physical Therapy

Ari and Doug created a mentorship program for a large national company in 2013, and they discovered the biggest need of PTs was personalized mentorship on clinical and leadership skills. Translating academic knowledge and experience into modern day healthcare can be a challenging task.

With the upcoming changes in healthcare, bundled payments and Accountable Care Organizations, Physical Therapist and other Rehabilitation Professionals are in a unique position to take on new leadership roles. In our belief, PTs will often be looked at as a leader in this new healthcare system. This will require PTs to push themselves to develop new clinical and leadership skills. This cannot be done alone, and ACE was created as place for PTs to gather and grow together.

Our goal at ACE is to go beyond providing education by providing community and mentorship so that our members not only grow as individuals, but they elevate our profession on a grand scale. PTMentorCircle.com will be a platform for our members to meet and share their talents. The website is designed so that you can get the mentorship that you need when you need it and as it most relates to you. ACE will also provide the latest in Physical Therapy knowledge utilizing technology and adult learning concepts to help you get the most out of our courses.

We invite you to join us in our pursuit of excellence. There is no easy path to excellence, which is why we have created ACE as a trusted guide to be there with you on your journey.
