A shared email address (ex: email@example.com) is handy for official communications, promotional materials and more. Email should not be used for patient communications*. See tips for setting up a shared email address »
A subdomain (ex: department.wustl.edu) can be created for select websites related to the School of Medicine. See the guide to choosing a subdomain (and other web addresses) »
*Clinical practices should not request a shared address for patient communications. All communications with patients must take place via MyChart, the patient portal. MyChart is the only secure messaging that is compliant with HIPAA regulations.
