Montalvan is a PGY 3 internal medicine resident and part of the Equity Diversity and Inclusion Committee of the Department of Medicine. He is also a founding member of the Latinx Association at IU School of Medicine.
Eight individuals were recognized by ILE at a gala in December for their progressive impact in Indiana’s Latinx community. The awards are “a token of our deepest appreciation for their hard work and a form of thanking them for their commendable leadership,” ILE said in a social media post announcing the honorees.
Montalvan worked closely with fellow IU residents Stephanie Cortes, MD and Mariel Luna, MD, to form the Latinx Association at IU School of Medicine in 2022 so residents and fellows from Latinx backgrounds could better connect with each other.
In addition to his work as a resident in Indianapolis, Montalvan serves as a liaison to the National Hispanic Medical Association as part of a program dedicated to developing future generations of Latinx medical professionals to make a difference in Hispanic Healthcare.
Montalvan attended Dowal College of Honduras and received his medical degree from Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Honduras. He regularly participates in research, including epidemiological studies, surveillance studies and randomized clinical trials.
