Would this be a HIPAA violation?

Hi friends, I just want to get your opinion on something. I work at my uncle's medical practice every summer and have access to our EHR system that also goes with the hospital system. I was invited to do a research project this summer with two physicians at the hospital and they have asked me to use my own log-in for the research to collect data. Obviously, as a medical student and general non-terrible person, I want this to be as above-board as possible and I don't want to break any... Would this be a HIPAA violation?
