July 14, 2023

Look more closely, and you’ll see that Gail Weingast’s path to her current position wasn't always a straight line. Beginning in 1969, when she attended Jackson College, Tufts University, in Medford, Massachusetts, she studied Spanish. She obviously didn’t always know she wanted to be a doctor, but it didn’t take long to find the right track. Soon after earning her Spanish Degree, she attended the Boston University School of Medicine, which is where she became Dr. Gail Weingast MD in 1976. Dr. Weingast completed several internships and residencies. She completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist from 1983 to 1984 at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver.

Dr. Gail Weingast then worked at several other hospitals in Colorado and New York, until she settled into her current position, at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, where she has been for more than 20 years. These days, Dr. Gail Weingast is perhaps best known as the incredible head of radiology. She also serves as the Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging. She has been able to guide her department into its current position as a premiere medical facility.
