The prevalence of cancer in Indonesia is 1.8 per 1000 population. Radiotherapy is a fundamental part of effective treatment and management of cancer. Radiotherapy equipment can be used optimally by competent medical physicists, but in North Sumatra not all physicists have sufficient competence due to technical reasons leading to lack of access to training in their field, so it is necessary to provide special training for medical physicists with ADVICE model training.
The paper will determine the effect of ADVICE training model on the competence of medical physicists in North Sumatra, by seek the differences in competency scores before and after training with ADVICE model. The competencies assessed included cognitive, affective, and psychomotor over treatment planning system (TPS)-material for seven medical physicists working in different hospitals in Medan City. This paper conducted the conclusion the mean cognitive score of respondents increased from 51.85 during the pretest to 90.28 during the posttest. The affective value of respondents as much as 85% has a value> 90. The average psychomotor score is 87.5 to 96.8. The ADVICE training model improves the competence of medical physicists in North Sumatra.
