It didn’t take long for Gail Weingast to want to become a doctor, but it wasn’t apparent that she wanted to at first. Her education started at Tufts University, where she earned a degree in Spanish. Not long after, however, she attended the School of Medicine at Boston University and in 1976, she became Dr. Gail Weingast MD.
After she completed medical school, Dr. Weingast started the real educational journey required of all doctors, completing a pediatrics internship, a pediatric residency, a radiology residency and an ultrasound fellowship at Colorado General Hospital in Denver and she completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist at Denver’s St. Anthony’s Hospital. She followed that as a practicing radiologist in hospitals in Colorado and New York before ending up as a highly regarded radiology specialist at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, where she has been for more than two decades. Now the Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging, Dr. Gail Weingast has guided the Backus radiology department to its current position as one of the best in the region and even the country.
