Dr. Gail Weingast Has Transformed Radiology in New England

April 20, 2022
While Gail Weingast’s career effectively started when she attended Jackson College, Tufts University, in Medford, Massachusetts, it was certainly not obvious that medicine would be her calling, given that her first Bachelor of Arts degree was in Spanish, nor pre-med, or biology or anything like that. Something must have occurred to her soon after, however, since she decided to attend the Boston University School of Medicine, where she officially became Dr. Gail Weingast in 1976. As is the case with virtually any doctor, medical school was just the beginning.

Following med school, Dr. Gail Weingast did a pediatrics internship from 1976-1977, a residency in pediatrics over 1978-1979, and a radiology residency between 1980-1983, all at Colorado General Hospital in Denver. She followed that with a fellowship in ultrasound technology in 1983, also at Colorado General. Dr. Gail Weingast completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver, in 1983. She then practiced at several other hospitals in Colorado and New York, until she settled into her current position, where she has been for 20 years.

Over all, with more than four decades of knowledge and experience, Dr. Weingast values every aspect of her educational and career journey because it has all contributed to make her the doctor she is today. Currently, Dr. Gail Weingast is a highly regarded radiology specialist at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, a hospital where she has been settle in for more than two decades. She currently serves at that facility’s Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging and, over the course of her time there, she has been able to guide her department into its current position as one of the top such facilities in the country.
