Meet The Faculty

Welcome to the Family Medicine Residency at Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato, Minnesota. We are proud of the individual training we provide our residents. Our core faculty have over 60 years of combined experience just in our residency program and play important roles in both the community of Mankato and the broader medical community of Minnesota.

From the program directors

John McCabe III, M.D. and Erin Westfall, D.O.We have been training family physicians here in Mankato, Minnesota, within the Mayo Clinic Health System for well over 20 years. We believe that family medicine residency is the start of a long and wonderful career caring for patients, families, and communities. We emphasize individual learning plans to help you develop a sustainable career that fits your values, helps you balance your personal and professional life, and teaches you to be a lifelong learner.

Our curriculum prepares you to take care of patients of all ages and throughout all stages of their lives, not only as their personal physicians, but also as a leader, scientist, and advocate for a healthy community. Our busy tertiary hospital and emergency department serve a large, mainly rural area. Our clinic has a community garden, dental clinic, and is staffed with psychologists, pharmacists, and community health and health equity professionals, allowing for team collaboration and integrated comprehensive patient care. We emphasize community engagement and staff two free clinics, make home visits, and provide care for nursing home patients in a small-town long-term care and rehabilitation facility.

We are immensely proud of our longstanding osteopathic training curriculum. We have been a dually accredited osteopathic and allopathic program for many years and have ACGME Osteopathic recognition. Both D.O.s and M.D.s will learn, grow, and use their osteopathic skills in the care of their patients.

We are excited that you are interested in our residency program and hope that you find Mankato to be the perfect fit for you to start your career as an outstanding family physician.
