Hallucinations and Delusions in Parkinson’s Disease

Dr. Korsmo will be discussing the various manifestations of hallucinations and delusions, when they might occur in relation to a disease itself or as a medication side effect and how providers approach specific treatments.

Dr. Michael Korsmo is a fellow at the University of Colorado Movement Disorders Center. He completed medical school at Tulane University and his residency at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

While in residency, Dr. Korsmo created and launched the school’s first Global Health Neurology rotation with the first site in Malawi. He also served as Chief Resident of Education where he restructured the introductory “Boot Camp” and Morning Report sessions. Beyond Movement Disorders, his interests include education, clinical reasoning, and global and rural health.
