NCRA accredits both Associate Degree Programs and Certificate Programs in Cancer Registry Management. These accredited programs follow standards set by NCRA’s Formal Education Program Review Committee. The curriculum content is consistent in all the NCRA accredited programs, but may differ according to the schedules (semester, rolling admission), tuition (in-state, out-of-state), and type of instruction (self-directed online or classroom/online instructor-led). In addition to NCRA accredited programs at community colleges, NCRA offers a self-directed, online certificate in Cancer Registry Management through the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). The list of Associate and Certificate Programs is below.
Cancer registrars are data information specialists that capture a complete history, diagnosis, treatment, and health status for every cancer patient in the U.S. The curated 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.
