Gail Weingast’s 40-plus-year career path started in 1969 with a bit of a twist. The first part of her journey started with the Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish she earned from Tufts University’s Jackson College. Apparently, the passion she eventually felt for a career in medicine wasn’t there right out of the gate. However, something must have sparked in her soon after because a few years later she entered the Boston University School of Medicine and she officially became Gail Weingast MD in 1976.
