Metro PT & SPEAR

Touro University Orthopedic Residency program is proud to secure a new clinical partnership with Metro Physical & Aquatic Therapy (Metro PT), a Long Island-based physical therapy multi-site practice, and SPEAR Physical Therapy, with over 40 locations in NYC, Westchester, Long Island, and NJ. The collaboration will benefit current and future employees of both Metro & SPEAR clinics by providing a substantially reduced tuition pathway toward an orthopedic residency, a new level of expertise in the field. This will be available to anyone in the Metro PT or SPEAR organizations who wishes to pursue higher education at a fraction of the cost. In exchange, the current Metro and SPEAR board-certified orthopedic specialists will serve as mentors for our residents, current and future. Please contact the program at for more information.

Cost of Attendance

Along with tuition, students should estimate the overall cost of completing an academic year - or the Cost of Attendance (COA) - in your program.

The COA – or student budget – not only lets you see the big picture costs of your degree, but also serves to determine your financial needs and the amount of aid (federal loans and scholarships) for which you may qualify.

COA includes:

  • Direct costs expenses that are paid directly to the University, such as tuition, fees, and on-campus housing and food.
  • Indirect costs expenses not paid directly to the University, such as off-campus housing and food, transportation, personal expenses, books, and supplies.

Your COA, and subsequent financial aid eligibility, is determined and calculated based on the academic year (semesters you are enrolled in classes).

While not specific to your circumstance, consider the information below as a sample Cost of Attendance for the Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency program.
