Diplomate is a title given to an individual who has completed some significant educational requirement and has received a Diploma. This is in contrast to a "Diplomat", which is an individual accredited by some governmental or similar body to act as its representative abroad. In the Chiropractic profession, this is usually distinct from a Certification in that the program generally last two to three years, whereas Certifications are typically one post-graduate year in duration.
It should be noted that it is not considered professionally acceptable for a Doctor to list "diplomate" of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners as though it were credential, as ALL DC's must complete these exams in order to be licensed in any state.
