Health information knowledge may affect attitude toward colorectal cancer screening, but the participation of health educated citizens are unknown. Therefore, we investigated non-participation in a sample of 886,088 invited participants, based on educational length, type, and level. Logistic regression analyses were conducted to estimate the odds of non-participation in Danish men and women based on educational type and length. Models were adjusted for age, income, marital status and immigration status. Information was derived from National registers. Men with long educational length level had increased odds of non-participation if their education was within the field of medicine/medical science (OR 1.87) or belonged to other long health educations, but not in nursing and health care, compared to other long educations after full model adjustment. Women with long educational length level had increased odds of non-participation if they were educated in the field of medicine/medical science (OR 1.47), whereas they had decreased odds in the fields of nursing and health care and other long health educations, compared to other long educations after full model adjustment. Men within short educational length level did not have different odds of nonparticipation, after full model adjustments, whereas women within short health educations were at increased odds in the youngest age group and at decreased odds in the eldest age group. Having an education in the field of medicine/medical science is associated with non-participation in colorectal cancer screening in Denmark 2014-2015. Opposite, an educational background in nursing and health care increased participation in women, but not in men.
