Sample 1: Resignation Letter for a Doctor

“Josue Ortega

City, State, Zip Code

Dr. Harris Templeton

Chief Partner, Company Name

City, State, Zip Code

Dear Dr. Templeton,

Please allow this letter to serve as my resignation as a doctor with Parkland Medical effective immediately. After many years of work, I am finally able to put together my own medical practice and I am going to jump at the opportunity. I am certain that you understand my excitement about this kind of venture.

As per our previous agreement, I will not be actively seeking Parkland Medical patients for my new practice. I have actually worked very hard to build a different set of patients that will allow me to start my private practice. The last thing that I want to do is damage Parkland Medical in any way and I have taken the proper steps to avoid that.

I want to thank you and the rest of the partners for your faith in my abilities and the opportunities you have given me. Without your guidance and support, I am certain that I would not be able to achieve the dream of my own medical practice.

If you have any questions or need more information, please call me at 000-000-0000 or email me at [email protected]

Sincerely Yours,

Dr. Richard E. Jonke”
