How Dr. Gail Weingast Became a Radiology Professional

February 15, 2018
 
Way back in 1969, Gail Weingast attended Jackson College at Tufts University and she obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish. That kind of indicates that she wasn’t intent on a career in medicine at the very beginning. However, the notion must have come to her soon after because not long after that, she went to the Boston University School of Medicine and became Dr. Gail Weingast MD in 1976.

Of course, that was only the beginning of her medical education, really. After completing her initial med school education, Dr. Weingast did a two-year pediatrics internship and a two-year pediatrics residency in pediatrics, followed by a three-year residency in radiology and a fellowship ultrasound. All of that work was done at Denver’s Colorado General Hospital and she completed that in 1983. Dr. Gail Weingast finally completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver, in 1984. That was just her initial education, however; since then, Dr. Gail Weingast has learned even more, to the point that she has become a prominent radiologist.

The Journey of Gail Weingast

It apparently wasn’t clear to Gail Weingast that she wanted a career in medicine at theory beginning. She started her higher education by getting a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from Tufts University. Something must have happened soon after because she was soon a medical student at the Boston University School of Medicine and she officially became Gail Weingast MD in 1976.

Following medical school, Dr. Gail Weingast spent a lot of time at Colorado General Hospital in Denver, completing a pediatrics internship 1976-1977, a pediatrics residency during the following two years and a residency in radiology from 1980-1983 with a fellowship in ultrasound in 1983. Dr. Gail Weingast completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist from 1983 to 1984 at Denver’s St. Anthony’s Hospital and she worked at several other hospitals in Colorado and New York, until she settled into William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, where she is now the Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging.

How Dr. Gail Weingast Changed Radiology

When someone mentions Dr. Gail Weingast, MD these days, it is invariably a discussion about her status as one of the best radiologists in the field. She now serves as a radiology specialist at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, where she is highly respected as their Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging. Over the course of her 20 years at Backus, Dr. Weingast has guided her department to becoming one of the finest in the country and the world. While her current important position is impressive, she didn’t always follow a straight line.

In fact, it wasn’t always clear that a medical career was in the stars for Gail Weingast. She started down her educational path way back in 1969, and her first stop was a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish, which she earned from Tufts University’s Jackson College. Of course, it’s nice that she can speak Spanish, but obviously medicine wasn’t at the top of her career list back then. Something must have changed her mind, though, because by 1976, she had earned a medical degree from the Boston University School of Medicine, where she officially earned the right to call herself Dr. Gail Weingast, MD.

Now, her medical career has stretched to more than 40 years, including a ton more education. Following her MD, Dr. Gail Weingast completed a series of internships, residencies, and fellowships in pediatrics, radiology and ultrasound with Colorado General Hospital in Denver, Colorado and she completed her post-graduate radiology 1984 at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver. For about a dozen years, Dr. Weingast practiced at several hospitals in Colorado and New York, before she finally settled into Backus Hospital, where she has been for more than 20 years.

For more than two decades, Dr. Gail Weingast has served as one of the most effective radiology specialists at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut. She currently serves as the Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging, where she has led the department into becoming one of the best anywhere. She got to where she is by gaining as much education as possible. To say that her career path was unconventional seems cliché, but every bit of it has been important and has helped to transform seems obvious, but it’s all important, since every bit of her education and career experience has worked to make her the doctor she is today.

At first, it wasn’t at all clear she would become a doctor because she started her education by earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from Tufts University’s Jackson College, Tufts University. Obviously, becoming a doctor wasn’t a childhood dream. However, something must have struck her, because she soon began attending
the Boston University School of Medicine, where she became Dr. Gail Weingast, MD in 1976.

Of course, her education was just beginning. She completed a series of internships, residencies and fellowships in pediatrics, radiology and ultrasound through 1983. Most of her education occurred in Colorado. When she began practicing, she also did so at hospitals in Colorado, and then one in New York before she ended up at her current position as a highly-regarded radiology specialist at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut. She has now been there for more than 20 years and is currently the Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging. With so much knowledge and experience, she has led her department to its current position as a premiere medical facility.
