Cancer Registrars

Advancement Prospects

The opportunity for career advancement in this field is good. Candidates most frequently begin at entry level positions, as a cancer registrar or abstractor, which involves basic data collection and entry. However, with experience and continuing education and interest, employees can accomplish positions as analysts, focusing on integration of the data into more helpful and meaningful reports. Within hospitals or health care facilities, as well as state, regional or federal registries, employees may climb the career ladder to become coordinators or supervisors, and ultimately registry managers or directors, increasing their responsibilities and pay.
