Support and Mentoring in Academic Medicine: Comments from Survey Participants
1997

These comments were compiled for the Committee for the Advancement and Support of Women in Academic Medicine. Dr. Eva Neer served as a member of the Senior Advisory Committee on Women of Partners Healthcare, which attempted to define problems that were keeping women from advancing in academic medicine. Dr. Eleanor Shore is quoted as saying this about Dr. Neer, "[she] applied the same rigor to the study of women’s faculty problems that she did to her other scientific research." While at Harvard, Dr. Neer also developed a reputation as a mentor for Harvard College undergraduates, Harvard medical students, and her own research fellows. Dr. Neer was one of six female doctors identified by women in this survey as a mentor.
