(Denison, IA) – Sarah Lundin, DO, a Board certified, OB-GYN specialist at Crawford County Memorial Hospital (CCMH), has been admitted as a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (FACOG). Dr. Lundin began her OB-GYN practice at CCMH in Denison in May 2016.

Bill Bruce, CCMH President and CEO, applauded Dr. Lundin for being named a Fellow.

“Being admitted as a Fellow is a voluntary process that goes above and beyond state licensing requirements for practicing medicine. It is an ongoing commitment by a physician to continually expand their knowledge in obstetrics and gynecology,” Bruce said.

To achieve Fellow status, a physician must possess an active, unrestricted license to practice medicine and surgery in each jurisdiction where the individual is licensed, and the attainment of high ethical and professional standing. Fellow status is only granted after a completed Fellow application has been received, processed and approved by the Executive Board of ACOG.

Dr. Lundin earned her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Omaha, NE. She is a 2010 graduate of Des Moines University Medical School with a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree. Dr. Lundin completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Aultman Hospital in Canton, OH and University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) in Omaha, NE. During her residency, she received clinical and surgical experience in general gynecology and obstetrics as well as urogynecology, reproductive endocrinology, high risk obstetrics and gynecologic malignancies. At the completion of residency, all OB-GYN physicians are required to complete an overall knowledge based exam which is ranked nationwide. Dr. Lundin scored in the 93rd percentile compared to all OB-GYN residents in the United States.
