It certainly seems to be the case that a great many medical professionals are led by a calling to a career in medicine, but that apparently wasn’t the case for the future Dr. Gail Weingast. When she commenced her education, Gail attended Tufts University’s Jackson College, where she proceeded to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish in 1969, with no pre-med in sight. She changed her mind shortly after, since she was soon matriculating at the Boston University School of Medicine and she officially became Dr. Gail Weingast MD in 1976.
Following medical school, of course, her education continued, at Colorado General Hospital in Denver. There, Dr. Gail Weingast completed a pediatrics internship in 1976-1977 and followed that with a residency in pediatrics, which she completed in 1978. At the same hospital, she completed a radiology residency from 1980 to 1983 and a fellowship in the field of ultrasound in 1983. Finally, Dr. Weingast completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist from 1983 to 1984 at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver. She then practiced as a radiologist at several other Colorado hospitals and then in New York, before she finally landed in her current position, at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut.
There, Dr. Gail Weingast is a highly regarded radiology specialist. She has been there for more than two decades, and now serves as their Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging. She is also credited with having guided her department into its current very prominent position as a premiere medical facility. These days, Dr. Gail Weingast values every aspect of her educational and career journey because everything has contributed to make her the medical pro she is today.
