MD early retirees???


I'm new to the forum; but have been following the websites/calculators for a while. I'm just wondering if there are any MD early retirees (to be's) on this forum. I'd like to learn from their perspectives, too.

Summary on me: I'm an immigrant; arrived in the US at age 18. Went to college and med school on my own budget, plus some loans from Uncle Sam. Finished my residency 3 yrs ago (after 12 years of post-high school training). I have a family of 4 (including me). High salary (500k) but I'm definitely LBYM type. So, after 40% taxes and 10% living expenses, I can save about 250k per yr. Hoping to FIRE in about 3 yrs, before I get sued and go broke.

For young dreamers out there: Pursuing a medical career is a huge investment in terms of time and money. But if one is disciplined, FI/RE goals can be achieved in less than 10 yrs after completing training.
