Employment of Cancer Registry professionals is projected to grow 22% by 2022 (much faster than the average for all other occupations according to BLS.gov). Overall, demand for technical healthcare services is rapidly increasing as the population ages – requiring more tests, procedures and treatments.
Cancer registrars work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, central or state cancer registries, accrediting organizations, government agencies, software vendors, pharmaceutical companies, insurance agencies and more. Working remotely is also a growing trend for cancer registrars, and some registrars work for outsourcing companies hired by hospitals to staff their cancer registry. Under these arrangements, you could even live in one state and work for a hospital in another.
Some employers require cancer registry professionals to be Certified Tumor Registrars® (CTR). The CTR credential demonstrates a requisite knowledge and professional competence needed within the cancer registry. It is nationally recognized in the recruitment and retention of registry personnel. In order to sit for the CTR exam, students must graduate from an NCRA-Accredited Program (like ours).
In fact, UC’s Cancer Registry Management (CRM) Certificate is one of very few NCRA-Accredited Certificate Programs offered online.
