Cancer registrars are data information specialists who record and capture a complete history, diagnosis, treatment, and health status for every cancer patient in the US. This data provides essential information to researchers, healthcare providers, and public health officials to better monitor and advance cancer treatments, conduct research, and improve cancer prevention and screening programs.
The University of Cincinnati’s online Cancer Registry Management program is one of very few NCRA-accredited cancer registrar certifications offered 100% online.
