Dr. Ryan Schouweiler, PT, DPT, OCS, founder of PTMENTORS, has always had a passion for mentoring and teaching. Early on in his career he was involved with mentoring PT and PTA students as a CI, teaching Advanced Anatomy and Physiology at a local technical college, teaching an orthopedic lab examination to medical students, mentoring new hires at the PT clinic he works at, and mentoring PTs while going through an orthopedic residency.

At one point he was asked what gives him job satisfaction. It was at this moment that he realized how much satisfaction he receives from mentoring other PTs and PTAs. With PTs and PTAs giving feedback on how much they valued the mentorship experience, he began to brainstorm how he could start doing this on a larger scale. After many discussions on how this could work, PTMENTORS was born.
