According to the National Cancer Registrars Association (NCRA), “cancer registrars capture a complete summary of the history, diagnosis, treatment, and disease status for every cancer patient. Registrars’ work leads to better information that is used in the management of cancer, and ultimately, cures." Most cancer registrars work in hospitals. Other work settings include central or state cancer registries, standard setting organizations, government agencies, software vendors, pharmaceutical companies, insurance agencies, and staffing firms. Some cancer registrars are self-employed. The Certified Tumor Registrar (CTR) credential is awarded to cancer registry professionals who pass NCRA’s certification examination. The NCRA Council on Certification sets eligibility requirements for the exam.
