When Dr. Gail Weingast began her education at Jackson College, Tufts University, in Medford, Massachusetts, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish and it wasn’t at all clear that she would become a great doctor. However, when she soon decided to attend Boston University School of Medicine, her direction was a lot clearer. By the time she officially became Dr. Gail Weingast, MD in 1976, her path was chosen.
Not that her career path was completely decided; attending medical school and getting an M.D. was only the beginning for her. Dr. Gail Weingast completed a pediatrics internship at Colorado General Hospital in Denver between 1976 and 1977 and then followed that with a pediatrics residency over the next two years. When that was complete, Dr. Weingast then did a radiology residency from 1980-1983, received and completed a fellowship in ultrasound technology in 1983 and she rounded out her post-graduate studies as a radiologist from 1983 to 1984 at St. Anthony’s Hospital, which was also in Denver.
Soon after that, she spent some time practicing medicine at a number of other hospitals in Colorado before heading to New York, after which she found herself in her cutrrent position, as a highly regarded radiology specialist at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, where she has happily practiced for more than 20 years.
These days, Dr. Gail Weingast currently serves as that facility’s Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging. During her time at Backus, she has guided her department into a position as one of the top such facilities in the country. Over the course of a career that now spans more than four decades, Dr. Weingast has come to value every aspect of her educational and career journey as important aspects of what made her the prominent physician she has become.
