Post Doctorate

Post Doctorate Certificate

A post-doctorate certificate is also known as a post-doctoral certificate.   A post-doctorate certificate can be earned by anyone who has already earned their doctorate. Post-doctorate certificate programs provide students with opportunities to further focus and specialize their education within a unique field.  For example, a person who has received their doctorate in nursing can go on to earn a post-doctorate certificate in nursing informatics or nursing administration.  Post-doctorate certificates are available in a wide variety of fields including business, education and psychology.

Benefits of a Post-Doctorate Certificate
A post-doctorate certificate opens up even more doors to students who have taken the time and put forth the effort to earn their doctoral degree.  Only about 2% of the American population holds a doctorate and far fewer than that hold a post-doctorate certificate.  By taking the extra year or so to earn a post-doctorate certificate, you can set yourself apart in the job market even more than with a doctorate degree alone.  Post-doctorate certificates are particularly useful for setting yourself apart for jobs which require a minimum of a doctorate.
