Prof Crampton, who is also the University of Otago health sciences pro-vice-chancellor, was addressing a gathering of bachelor of medical science honours students at the medical school earlier this week.
They are taking a year off from their usual medical studies to undertake health science-related research and to gain the honours qualification.
Prof Crampton emphasised the importance of maintaining the ''humanity'' of medical care and also highlighted the value of scientific research, and of leadership and effective teamwork in healthcare.
Doctors also had to be ''research literate'' to help translate ''knowledge into practice'', he said.
