A Template for Students Reconsidering Their Career in Medicine

A Template for Students Reconsidering Their Career in Medicine

Having forgotten the joys of “having a life”, many third year medical students at FSM returned from winter break with a desire to end their enrollment in the M.D. degree program. After receiving many requests for advice on how to “break the news gently” we have carefully prepared the following form letter to explain your decision to withdraw from medical school.

Dear Feinberg,

I, [your name here], wish to inform you that I will no longer be returning to classes or clinical duties as a student at your institution. I started giving this a lot of thought over winter break and I decided…I’m just not gonna do this medicine stuff anymore.

I really appreciate all the time you put into coming up with the new curriculum. And organizing everyone’s clinical clerkship experiences seems like a really big job. I don’t want to seem ungrateful. But after not doing things over winter break…I think I just wanna not do things now. Or you know, things like watch all of Gossip Girl again, or listen to this cool new podcast called Serial. Or maybe read a book. I don’t know. I hope you get the gist.

So, yeah, I guess that’s all really. I just wanted to give you a heads up that you don’t need to bother deducting professionalism points. I’m not missing a few days of this clerkship. I’m just…not gonna go anymore…

With not that much regret really,

[your signature here]
