Certificate programs are a popular choice for many professionals who want to gain skills or certification in a particular area or move from one career to another. Certificates generally cost less than full-blown master’s or PhD programs and they may only require a few courses.
What is a certificate in pediatrics? A certificate in pediatrics certifies an individual to work specifically with young children in the healthcare field. Students who pursue this certificate will likely take courses related to caring for children, common health issues children experience, pediatric diagnostics and others. Depending on your interests and skills, you can pursue certificates aimed at specific healthcare roles like nurses and physical therapists. If caring for children from birth to age 18 sounds like a fulfilling career, you may want to consider this certificate.
In addition to being able to help young children, a certificate in pediatrics can help you enter a specialization that pays an attractive salary and is in high demand. Employment for nurses with a specialization in pediatrics, for example, is expected to grow considerably.
The exact cost of your certificate program in pediatrics will vary a lot depending on which school you go to and what location it is in. For exact cost, you should contact the school of your choice.
With a pediatric certificate, you will likely continue working in your primary field with a new focus on providing pediatric care. Some areas that may benefit from a pediatric certificate include dentistry, nursing, physical therapy and rehabilitation. With your credentials you will be certified to work with children, providing general care, making diagnoses, prescribing treatment or medication, and administering medical services.
