2000s - Erulkar

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2005 - Autumn


Jonathan Solomon Erulkar, M.D. ’01, and Deirdre “Dede” Holden Carroll, M.S.N. ’00, A.P.R.N., were married on August 1, 2004, in Lake Forest, Ill. Fellow Yale Medicine grads who attended included John Abraham, M.D. ’00, and Badri Rengarajan, M.D. ’99. Erulkar is in his fifth year and a chief resident in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation at Yale. Carroll, a psychiatric clinical nurse specialist and adult nurse practitioner, is a third-year Ph.D. student at Boston College. Previously she spent several years as a co-investigator in the Clinical Trials Program at the Yale Child Study Center and on the clinical faculty of the Yale School of Nursing. Since their honeymoon on Anguilla, the newlyweds have settled into married life in Branford, Conn. In 2006, however, they will be moving to Boston, where Jonathan has accepted a spine surgery fellowship at the New England Baptist Hospital and a clinical faculty appointment with Tufts University School of Medicine.
