The Power List is also available in the print version of The Medicine Maker, as well as on the iPad app and in the downloadable PDF of the 2015 April issue.

The selection process

The list was developed in three stages. In stage one, the magazine invited readers to nominate those who they thought deserved recognition. In stage two, a jury of four noted medicine makers (who prefer to remain anonymous) selected their top 100 from the slate of nominees: the results were consolidated into a list of 100 names. In the final stage, the jury ranked the list, and the average rankings were combined to provide the final Power List.
