Volunteer Online with MyChart

The physicians at Yale are using a state-of-the-art electronic medical record (EMR) that allows patients to access their personal health information through a product called MyChart. Patients using MyChart have access to information including appointment information, immunizations, lab results, medications and more, all conveniently accessed online over a highly secure connection designed to protect personal health information.

Creating a volunteer profile allows you to express interest in study categories, which helps our recruitment team match you to trials for which you may be eligible. It indicates that you are interested in volunteering for a study but it is not a commitment to do so.
