It apparently wasn’t a lifelong calling that led Dr. Gail Weingast to an illustrious career in medicine, since she actually began her educational journey by earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from Tufts University. However, soon after that, something caused her to create a strong career in medicine because he enrolled as a medical student at the Boston University School of Medicine, where she officially became Gail Weingast MD in 1976. Following medical school, Dr. Weingast spent a long time at Colorado General Hospital in Denver, where she completed a two-year pediatrics internship, a two-year pediatrics residency, a three-year residency in radiology and a fellowship in ultrasound, all before 1983.
The next year, Dr. Gail Weingast completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist at Denver’s St. Anthony’s Hospital. She followed that by practicing at a number of other hospitals in Colorado and New York, before landing at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, where she is now the Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging. In her more than 20 years there, she has transformed her department into one of the best anywhere.
