(CNN) -- Alternative and traditional medicines are often seen as adversaries, but a new program at the University of Arizona (UA) College of Medicine is working to bring them closer together.

The first graduates in UA's Integrative Medicine Program hope to change the way doctors are trained by bringing both alternative and traditional healing into the modern clinic.

Senior Medical Correspondent Dan Rutz took a look at the university program and talked to some of its participants.
