The Journey of Gail Weingast

November 25, 2017
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.
