Academic Bio

Rayne Loder, MHS, PA-C is a board certified Physician Assistant who is currently an Assistant Professor with the University of Utah Physician Assistant Program (UPAP). Her primary teaching location is the St. George campus. Rayne received her undergraduate degree in biology in 2006 from Lebanon Valley College and graduated from the Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania Physician Assistant Program in 2013 with a Master of Health Science Degree. She spent the first 3 years of her clinical career practicing in Washington State, first in primary care at a Federally Qualified Health Center and remote IHS site, then in emergency medicine at a Level III trauma center. She then moved to New Hampshire, where she worked in perioperative medicine at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and enjoyed a faculty appointment to the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College. When given the opportunity to be among the first cohort of Advanced Practice Clinicians to staff the emergency department at a Critical Access Hospital in southern New Hampshire, she jumped at the chance and enjoyed practicing full-spectrum emergency medicine with a wonderful team of medical professionals. Although she now works full time in academics, she maintains an interest in emergency medicine and volunteers one afternoon a week at the Doctors' Volunteer Clinic in St. George where she practices outpatient acute care.
