Dear Dr. XX,
Your student is enrolled in the physician leadership in quality and safety scholarly concentration. This year-long scholarly concentration is voluntary but there is a mandatory class on Tuesday from 3-5pm once monthly. It is essential your student participate in the class so that he/she may develop the skills necessary to complete his/her final year-long project.
I would appreciate it if you excuse XX from clinical duties to attend this class.
