Like most doctors, Dr. Gail Weingast can point to a lot of education in her background, to complement her experience, which is closing in on the half-century mark. It wasn’t always apparent she would become a great radiologist at first. Consider that her academic education launched in 1969, which is when Gail Weingast attended Jackson College at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. At that time, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish. Sometime later, she did attend the Boston University School of Medicine. That is where she became Gail Weingast MD in 1976.

Following medical school, Dr. Gail Weingast completed a pediatrics internship from 1976-1977 and a two-year pediatrics residency at Colorado General Hospital in Denver. She then followed that with a residency in the field of radiology from 1980 to 1983 and a fellowship in the field of ultrasound in 1983. Dr. Weingast completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist from 1983 to 1984 at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver. That’s a lot of education, but there was a lot more to come, since experience is the best education.

It was in 1976 that Dr. Gail Weingast earned her degree in medicine from Boston University’s School of Medicine -- a year that began her four decade career in the field. She entered the School of Medicine rather unconventionally, after having received a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish in 1969. However, a medical career was what she desired and studied toward following undergrad.

After attaining her degree in medicine, Dr. Gail Weingast completed various internships and residencies. These provided additional education toward the career as well as helped her hone her specific field of study within medicine. Following an internship in pediatrics for one year, she focused during his residency at the same hospital, Colorado General in Denver, and from 1980 to 1983, she further examined radiology. Through these years, Dr. Gail Weingast learned a considerable amount about this facet of medicine and truly enjoyed radiology. In 1983, she completed a fellowship in ultrasound before moving on to post-graduate studies for the next year at Denver’s St. Anthony’s Hospital.

As Dr. Gail Weingast began her career, standing on her own as a doctor, she returned to radiology -- a field for which she discovered a passion during her four-year residency. For the decades that followed, Dr. Gail Weingast served as a radiologist for William W. Backus Hospital before becoming Chief of Ultrasound then Chief of Breast Imaging.

This was her first step towards preparing for her future medical career and while the step one took place in 1969, she wouldn’t receive he medical degree from Boston University’s School of Medicine until 1976. During these years, she attended multiple schools and earned multiple degrees that would all lead her to the place that she is at now. This long road prepared Dr. Gail Weingast for her residencies and fellowships which eventually led her to become a radiology specialist at William W. Backus Hospital.
