Nowadays, you can find Dr. Gail Weingast practicing in her current position, as one of the most important radiology specialists at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut. She has been there for more than a couple of decades. Currently the Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging at Backus, Dr. Weingast has been a leader in her field, to the point that she has led her department into its current position as one of the elite facilities in the region and in the country.
While she can point to a medical career that now spans more than 40 years, Dr. Gail Weingast has come to value every aspect of her educational and career journey because everything has made her into the prominent radiologist and medical professional she is today. The journey began in 1969, when (Not-yet-Dr.) Gail Weingast attended Jackson College, Tufts University, in Medford, Massachusetts. There, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish. While is seems unclear that she would be a doctor someday, let alone an honored professional, something must have motivated her soon after. In 1976, she did receive a medical degree from Boston University School of Medicine, which is when she officially became Gail Weingast, MD.
Following medical school, Dr. Weingast completed a pediatrics internship and residency, as well as a radiology residency and a fellowship in the field of ultrasound, all by 1983, from Colorado General Hospital, as well as post-graduate training as a radiologist from St. Anthony’s Hospital. Both of those hospitals are in Denver, which is where Dr. Gail Weingast worked for the most part, until she decided to take a position as a radiology specialist at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut. She has now been there more than 20 years. In that time, she has mov her department into its current position as a premiere medical facility. With 40 years in, a medical career seems a natural for Dr. Gail Weingast.
