Dr Richard Freeman has resigned from his role with British Cycling due to ill health.
Freeman had been off work from his role with the governing body for cycling in Great Britain, suffering from a stress-related illness.
"Dr Richard Freeman has tendered and we have accepted his resignation from British Cycling in the interest of his health," a British Cycling spokesman said in a statement.
"We regret that we have not been able to reconcile all unanswered questions whilst he was in our employment but we continue to work closely with UKAD as we are intent on bringing their investigation to a satisfactory conclusion.
"We hope that upon his return to health, Richard can do his part to help bring to a close ongoing investigations."
The former Team Sky doctor was at the centre of an investigation regarding the contents of a medical package delivered to Sir Bradley Wiggins at the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine.
