Dr. Gail Weingast Has Helped to Transform Radiology

December 20, 2021
Gail Weingast officially became a doctor in 1976, when she completed her initial medical studies at the Boston University School of Medicine. Of course, earning the right to be called Dr. Gail Weingast, M.D. was only the beginning of her medical education as a doctor and a top-notch radiologist. As it turned out, she needed a lot more to be allowed to treat patients. Following med school, Dr. Weingast did a two-year pediatrics internship and a two-year residency in pediatrics, followed by a three-year residence in radiology and a fellowship in ultrasound technology.

All of that was competed in 1983 at Colorado General Hospital in Denver, and for the next year, Dr. Gail Weingast completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver between 1983 and 1984. She kicked around for a while, practicing in several other hospitals in Denver and the rest of Colorado for a while, before going to New York for a short time, before she finally settled into her current position as a highly regarded radiology specialist at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut. Over more than two decades, she has transformed her radiology department into one of the best in New England and the nation.
