Her education began in in 1969, when the future Dr. Gail Weingast attended Jackson College, Tufts University, in Medford, Massachusetts, doing the work needed to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish. While that would seem to indicate that being a doctor was not a lifelong calling, she did soon move on to the Boston University School of Medicine, where she officially became Dr. Gail Weingast MD in 1976. Of course, as if usually the case for a great radiologist, that was but the beginning. There were numerous internships, residencies and fellowships involved in completing her education and she finished that up at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Denver, way back in 1984.

Following her post-graduate studies, Dr. Gail Weingast worked at several hospitals in Colorado and New York before landing at her current hospital, William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, where she has been a radiology specialist for more than two decades. Currently, she is the Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging. From that honored position, she has been able to guide her department into its current position as a premiere medical facility.
