Dr. Rainier received her education in the schools at Coldwater and in the State Normal School at Ypsilanti, Mich. She entered the medical department of the University of Michigan in 1872, where she pursued her professional studies two years. This was succeeded by one year in the New England Hospital for Women and Children of Boston. Then followed a year of work to obtain the means to finish her studies, after which she took her degree in the Woman's College of Philadelphia. She was then appointed resident physician of a hospital in Philadelphia, to which work she gave one year. At the suggestion of a classmate of Ann Arbor, Dr. Mary F.
