About this Program
This program is designed for those interested in becoming a cancer registrar. Cancer registrars are data information specialists that capture a complete history, diagnosis, treatment, and health status for every cancer patient in the United States. The data provide 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. Registrars work closely with physicians, administrators, researchers, and health care planners to provide support for cancer program development, ensure compliance of reporting standards, and serve as a valuable resource for cancer information with the ultimate goal of preventing and controlling cancer.
