YAZAN AL_HAYEK commenced work as an Associate Lecturer in Medical Radiation Science – Diagnostic Radiography in 2021 at Wagga Wagga campus. YAZAN graduated from Jordan University of Science and Technology (Jordan) with a Bachelor of Radiologic Technology in 2007. He has over 11 years of practical expertise and more than four years of experience teaching theoretical and practical Diagnostic Radiography overseas (Jordan). Throughout 2013 – 2014, YAZAN supervised undergraduate students in the Medical Imaging program in their clinical placement, before he was appointed as a part-time lecturer in the Department of Medical Imaging at The Hashemite University in Jordan (2015 - 2016). In 2017, YAZAN enrolled at Charles Sturt University (CSU) to study for a Master’s Degree in Medical Radiation Science (Computed Tomography Specialisation), which he completed in 2018, with Honours. In June 2019, YAZAN commenced his PhD candidature in Computed Tomography at CSU.
