Cancer Registry Management Careers

Employment of Cancer Registry Managers is projected to grow 22% by 2022 (much faster than the average for all occupations). Demand for technical healthcare services will continue to grow 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 staffing firms. Many employers require Cancer Registrars to be Certified Tumor Registrars. Students who achieve this certificate will be prepared to sit for the exam.

Many of our AAS Health Information Systems graduates continue their education and pursue a Bachelor’s in Health Information Management Online.  Nearly all of our students complete our program(s) while working full-time. With a Bachelor’s, you can sit for the Registered Health Information Administrator (RHIA) exam, further increasing your earning potential!

Those with a Bachelor’s can consider our Master of Health Informatics Program, which is in high demand!

On average, certified Cancer Registrars earn above average incomes (up to $90,000 per year*)
