  • Fig. 1. The greatest prize of all.

    Shown are Nobel Laureates in Physiology or Medicine by medical degree, 1901–2015. A steady decline in the proportion of clinician-scientists awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine has led to a shift in predominant career pathways of Nobel Laureates in Physiology or Medicine from clinician-scientists to nonclinically trained scientists. Bars indicate proportions; figures in the bars indicate absolute numbers. A Nobel Prize was not awarded in 1915–1918, 1921, 1925, or 1940–1942.
