Radiology Specialist Dr. Gail Weingast Makes Her Profession Better

December 28, 2017
 
Dr. Gail Weingast has certainly come a long way since 1969, when, as a young woman, she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish from Jackson College at Tufts University, in Medford, Massachusetts. Perhaps her choice to become a doctor wasn’t a childhood dream. However, it wasn’t long before medicine became a career because she did earn a medical degree from the Boston University School of Medicine and earned the right to be referred to as Dr. Gail Weingast MD in 1976.

Of course, as is the case for all doctors, medical school was just the beginning. Not long after that, Dr. Gail Weingast started her medical journey by completing several internships and residencies in pediatrics and radiology at Colorado General Hospital in Denver, before she completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver. She then practiced in several hospitals in Colorado and New York before finally becoming a highly regarded radiology specialist at Norwich, Connecticut-based William W. Backus Hospital. She’s been there for more than a couple decades and she is their Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging. She also has been instrumental in turning her department into one of the elite facilities in New England and beyond.

Radiologist Bio: Dr. Gail Weingast

The career journey that eventually turned Dr. Gail Weingast into a star radiologist with one of the most prominent hospitals in the country began rather inauspiciously in 1969, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish, which she earned from Tufts University’s Jackson College. Obviously, medicine wasn’t at the top of her mind when she began her education. Despite that, however, she made up for lost time. By 1976 - just seven years later - she was Dr. Gail Weingast, MD, which she earned when she worked hard to complete her initial studies at the Boston University School of Medicine.

Of course, as is always the case for any doctor, the newly anointed Dr. Gail Weingast had a lot more to do, if she was going to make it in the medical community. She did a pediatrics internship, a pediatrics residency, a radiology residency and an ultrasound fellowship at Colorado General Hospital in Denver, all of which she completed by 1983 and finished her post-graduate studies as a radiologist from 1983 to 1984 at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver. After a few more years working in other hospitals in Colorado and New York, she landed at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, where she has transformed their radiology department into one of the best.
