Generally speaking, many medical professionals pick a specialty early on in their careers and then rarely venture from that specialty throughout their career. Dr. Gail Weingast began her studies in the field of pediatrics from the years of 1976-1977. This time was spent looking deeply into this one particular specialty which helped her to gain a better understanding of pediatrics before deciding on her own career path. Dr. Gail Weingast decided to stick with pediatrics at that time and she performed her residency in Pediatrics at Colorado General Hospital over the next two years. It was then that she decided to make a change and she did a residency in the Radiology department from 1980 to 1983. It was at this time that she found the perfect speciality for her and she directly followed her residency with a fellowship in the field of Ultrasound in 1983.
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.
These days, Dr. Gail Weingast is perhaps best known as a highly regarded radiology specialist at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, where she is the Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging. Of course, her path to her current position wasn't always a straight line.
It all began in 1969, when Gail Weingast attended Jackson College, Tufts University, in Medford, Massachusetts. There, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish. That indicated that she didn’t always know she would be a doctor, but soon after, she decided to go to the Boston University School of Medicine, which is where she became Gail Weingast MD in 1976.
Dr. Weingast also did a pediatrics internship from 1976-1977 at Colorado General Hospital in Denver, then completed a residency in pediatrics over the next two years, after which she also completed a residency in the field of radiology from 1980 to 1983 and a fellowship in the field of ultrasound in 1983. Dr. Weingast completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist from 1983 to 1984 at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver.
Soon after that, Dr. Gail Weingast worked at several other hospitals, mostly in Colorado, but also in New York, until she settled into her current position, where she has been for more than 20 years. In that time, she has been able to guide her department into its current position as a premiere medical facility with her more than four decades of knowledge and experience.
