Dear Dr. Ng,

Please consider receipt of this letter my official resignation as physician assistant, effective February 5, 2021.

I am fortunate enough to have received an offer to lead the pediatrics department at Los Angeles Medical Center. I look forward to continuing to practice medicine that helps children lead healthy and fulfilling lives. I hope to make my departure as easy as possible for my colleagues and the department. Please do not hesitate to call my personal phone at 888-888-8888 so we can discuss how I can be of assistance. I intend to complete our internal policy review before my last day.

Working at San Diego Regional Medical Center has prepared me for continued success. I feel grateful to have gained such incredible insight into pediatrics from so many talented medical professionals, all united in our belief that children deserve the best care possible. The lessons you and the rest of the team have offered me will inform how I treat patients for the rest of my career. I look forward to remaining in touch and continuing to admire the achievements of the pediatrics team here in San Diego.

“Brady Kline,

Please allow this letter to serve as my two-week resignation notice from Alpine Hospital. I am resigning my position as a physician assistant to start my own personal practice in my hometown. This has been a dream of mine since medical school and now I finally get to bring that dream to reality.

I want to thank you sincerely for all of the time and effort you put into making me into the physician that I am today. I also want to point out that I was very proud to work so closely with a dedicated team of medical professionals. The staff and myself were on hand for two major natural disasters and I feel that our performance was not only admirable, but it saved a lot of lives that day.

I do understand that this leaves the hospital in a tough spot when it comes to an emergency physician, but my window for being able to open my practice is narrow and I want to take the opportunity while it exists. If, after I have left the hospital, you need to get a hold of me for any reason, please feel free to call me at 000-000-0000 or email me at Your calls and emails will always be welcome to me.

Sincerely Yours,

Dr. Anthony V. Sparta”

“Dear Hospital Administrator Bennett:

It is with deep sadness that I resign my position as a physician assistant at XYZ Metropolitan Hospital effective the first of next month. These last 4 years leading the amazingly gifted medical staff in the emergency department at XYZ have been some of the best years of my life. I will miss each and every member of the team from the trauma center to the burn center and from the talented surgeons who save lives to the dedicated orderlies who go that extra mile to comfort patients who are in great pain.

As you know, I have taken time off in the past to be a part of a medical team, under the umbrella of the non-profit ABC Medical Relief Organization, which travels to war torn areas on the continent of Africa for the purpose of providing emergency medical treatment to the victims of civil wars and border conflicts. The conditions in these countries are heart wrenching and the innocent men, women and children desperately need help.

Although it is exceedingly difficult for me to leave my dear friends and second family at XYZ I feel a tremendous burden for the African people who suffer from the effects of violent and corrupt governments in their countries. They need medical treatment for injuries and illnesses as well as healthy food, clean drinking water, basic sanitation, vitamins, vaccinations, antibiotics and a host of other items that we in America take for granted, but to which these people have no access.

The ABC Medical Relief Organization is able to provide the help that these people need and I believe it is my calling to be a permanent part of ABC’s efforts. This is not a decision I take lightly and is one that has been thoroughly considered. I am eternally grateful for all I have learned at XYZ Metropolitan and for the opportunity to work with the talented staff to serve our community.

With Humble Gratitude and Best Regards,

Alexander J. Blackwell, M.D.”
