 Senator Ervin Yen represents Senate District 40, which includes parts of Bethany, Nichols Hills, northwest Oklahoma City, The Village and Warr Acres.

Senator Yen was born in Taipei, Taiwan in 1954. After the Communists took over China and several relatives on the China mainland were imprisoned, Yen’s parents, fearing an invasion of Taiwan, made the difficult decision to leave their families behind and come to America in pursuit of a better life. When he was four years old, Senator Yen immigrated to America. In 1960 his family moved into what is now Senate District 40, and he has lived there ever since. Along with his parents and two siblings, he became a naturalized U.S. citizen at the age of 9.

Yen graduated from Putnam City High School in 1973. He next earned a degree in zoology from the University of Oklahoma, and then put himself through OU Medical School. After completing his residency in 1984, he began practicing as an anesthesiologist. Dr. Yen has worked as a cardiac anesthesiologist at Saint Anthony Hospital and Integris Baptist Medical Center for more than 20 years.

Senator Yen and his wife, Pam, have been happily married for over 28 years. They have five children and are active members of Christ the King Catholic Church. He is a past president of the Oklahoma Society of
Anesthesiologists and past Chief of the Anesthesiology section at St. Anthony Hospital. Senator Yen has served as a member of the University of Oklahoma President’s Associates for 31 years.
