Gath, a clinical associate professor in the UAMS College of Medicine, earned her medical degree from the Centro de Estudios Universitarios Xochiacalco in Ensenada, Mexico. Gath then completed an additional year of clinical education at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York.

Board certified in both internal medicine and pediatrics, Gath did her internal medicine/pediatrics residency at Cook County Hospital in Chicago where she then became associate director of a multidisciplinary, comprehensive, integrated clinic for women and children affected by HIV. During that time she also helped conduct four missions to Romania where she provided HIV education to health care personnel.

In 1994, Gath became an associate professor at Albany Medical College in New York, and most recently was in a private practice that specialized in women’s health care needs.
