How Dr. Gail Weingast Has Transformed Radiology

Dr. Gail Weingast’s path to her current position didn’t always follow a straight line, that’s for sure. However, she values every aspect of her educational and career journey because it has all contributed to make her the doctor she is today. It all began in 1969, when Gail Weingast attended Jackson College at Tufts University, to earn a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Spanish. Soon after that, she got the idea to enter medical school, though, because she received her M.D. from the Boston University School of Medicine officially became Dr. Gail Weingast in 1976.

Following medical school, Dr. Gail Weingast continued her studies, completing a pediatrics internship from 1976-1977, a residency in pediatrics over the following two years, a radiology residency from 1980 to 1983 and a fellowship in the field of ultrasound in 1983, all from Colorado General Hospital in Denver. Dr. Weingast completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist between 1983 and 1984 at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver. She then began practicing at several hospitals in Colorado and New York, until she settled into her current position as a highly regarded radiology specialist at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, where she has been for more than 20 years.

These days, Dr. Gail Weingast serves as the Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging for Backus Hospital. Over her two-decades-plus, she has been able to guide her department into its current position as a premiere medical facility in the country. With more than 40 years of education and experience, Dr. Gail Weingast is considered one of the greatest radiologists in the country.
