When entering the field of medicine, it often takes additional education for any budding doctor to discover his or her specific expertise. Through fellowships, internships and residencies, an emerging doctor follows his or her course of education through medical school into hospitals for hands-on study. Only then, after working within the field and through specific medical avenues, does a doctor typically focus on a medical expertise. This is the same route that Dr. Gail Weingast took as she approached medicine more than four decades ago.
After graduating from Boston University’s School of Medicine in 1976, Dr. Gail Weingast began several rounds of internships, fellowships and residencies in the next several years to follow. She studied pediatrics, ultrasound and radiology across different hospitals, gaining as much knowledge as possible. As she entered her career in 1984, after completing a final round of post-graduate studies at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado, she chose to focus on radiology -- a medical subject matter that spanned the entirety of her residency at Denver’s Colorado General Hospital.
Not only did Dr. Gail Weingast move into radiology for the next several years across hospitals in Colorado and New York, but she also grew in the field, later becoming Chief of Ultrasound and then Chief of Breast Imaging for William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut.
