Patients and Doctors Appreciate the Medical Journey of Dr. Gail Weingast

The medical educational journey of Dr. Gail Weingast began about a half-century ago in 1969. It was that year when she earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Spanish from the Jackson College at Tufts University, in Medford, Massachusetts. It’s fair to say that because her first degree was not at all medical, it is not certain that she always wanted to be a doctor. Something happened, however, because by 1976, she gained her medical degree from the Boston University School of Medicine. That is when she officially became Dr. Gail Weingast.

After she finished medical school, Dr. Gail Weingast continued her educational pursuits. She completed a pediatrics internship and then a two-year residency in pediatrics, followed by the completion of a three-year radiology residency, all by 1983, at Colorado General Hospital in Denver. She followed that with a fellowship in the field of ultrasound in 1983 at the same hospital, although Dr. Gail Weingast completed her post-graduate studies as a radiologist at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver, in 1984.
