Dr. Carol Dinkelacker Sheridan, a former faculty member at the Georgetown University Medical Center for 25 years, died last Friday due to a heart ailment. She was 56 years old.

Sheridan, who worked as the interim chairperson of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, left her position at the university last year because of her heart condition.

According to brother-in-law Dr. Philip Sheridan (M ’76), Sheridan was born in 1945 near Scranton, Penn. She attended Skidmore College and earned her M.D. from the Medical College of Pennsylvania, followed by an internship at Nassau County Medical Center in East City, N.Y. After a residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation in Moss Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia and another in the Howard Rust Rehabilitation Institute in New York City, Sheridan joined the Georgetown faculty in 1975.

In 1971, she married Dr. Andrew James Sheridan (M ’70), currently a member of the clinical faculty at the Medical Center and a private practitioner out of Arlington Hospital.
