Appropriate to have 1 letter writer compose 2 separate letters for separate programs?

My employer has already submitted a letter to my medical schools. However, I am requesting that same letter writer to compose a letter for my teacher employment application. However, this LOR for the job is non-confidential, and I upload the letter myself to the portal.

Through requesting this, will the medical school letter maintain is confidentiality? Thank you for your help!

Since the programs are separate and the letters written by the same writer are different, I don't see how the confidentiality of your medical school letter could be compromised.

Make sure you let your letter writer know that the letter is not-confidential for your program application (unlike the medical school one). And let your letter writer decide the rest.

Applicants confused the "confidentiality" aspects of this.
As a medical school applicant, you are expected to give up your right to demand to see the letter
The letter writer is perfectly free to give you a copy if they choose to do so

Thank you for all your responses! It seems like as long as the 2 letters are clearly separate to different programs, that letter writer can compose both letters.
