55: Physician Early Retirement & Fatherhood

by Jen Barna MD | Life Journey, Podcast, Resilience

“Be careful what you wish for! I was hoping to spend more time with my family and my children. Of course, my decision wasn’t calculating with the fact of the pandemic. So what I ended up with was almost like an immense immersion.” -Dr. Jiuming Ye 

In today’s episode we celebrate Father’s Day with Dr. Jiuming Ye. Jen and Dr. Ye have a rich, interesting conversation about his life. Starting with his childhood in China during a time of turmoil. For years he had no formal schooling, yet he ended up graduating from medical school. He then came to the states for graduate school in pursuit of his PhD. At this time he was doing research until he realized he missed clinical medicine. We pick up the conversation today, now that he retired early almost a year ago from a successful medical career as a nephrologist. His dream of retirement was to spend more time with his family and children and to travel and spend time on his interests. But he didn’t count on the Pandemic. Tune in to hear how things turned out and a really great perspective on parenting and the resiliency of children! 

Dr. Jiuming Ye received his M.D. at Capital Institute of Medicine, Bejing PRC. He earned his M.S. at Eastern Illinois University and his Ph.D. at State University of New York at Buffalo. He completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center, and served as Chief Resident of Medicine at VAMC/Mount Sinai School of Medicine. His fellowship was completed in the Renal Division at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School
