The medical educational journey of Dr. Gail Weingast began in 1969, when she earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Spanish Jackson College, Tufts University, in Medford, Massachusetts.

Something happened, however, because by 1976, shew graduated with a 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 at St. Anthony’s Hospital, also in Denver. That course of study was as a radiologist and it ended in 1984.
