Dr. Gail Weingast has a lot of education to work from, but she also has tons of experience. Besides numerous internships and residencies at a couple of prominent Colorado hospitals, she worked at several other hospitals in Colorado and in New York, until she settled into her current position. When she took a position as a radiology specialist at William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut, she really found a home. She is now very highly regarded as the Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging, ands she has been at Backus for more than 20 years.

In that time, Dr. Gail Weingast has been able to guide her department into its current position as a premiere medical facility with her more than four decades of knowledge and experience. It’s no secret why; she has a ton of experience and education and she knows what she is doing. She has certainly come a long way in the more than four decades since she earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts.

More than that, she is that hospital’s Chief of Ultrasound and Breast Imaging, where she has worked to transform her department into one of the most important radiology departments in New England the the country.

It is true that Dr. Gail Weingast’s path to her current position wasn't always a straight line, but she values everything she did along the way because all of her experiences have had a role in forming her into the important radiology specialist she has become. For example, after medical school, Dr. Weingast did an internship and residency in pediatrics, as well as a residency in radiology and a fellowship in ultrasound at Colorado General Hospital in Denver, and then completed her studies as a radiologist at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver, by 1984. And all of that - even the Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish she earned at Tufts in 1969, is valuable.
