What leading providers say


Outstanding customer service. I had a few initial questions on how to upload my CMEs, and the Orbit staff made the process very easy. I am a sonographer and was able to complete my ARDMS requirements by reviewing journal articles during down time at work.

Scott Campbell MHA, RDCS, RVT Sonographer

We’ve all seen the emails from colleagues, the social media posts... “what’s the best way to get CME?” Orbit is the easiest and most affordable way to get all of the CME you need, by doing what you do anyways. I 100% recommend Orbit CME to every radiologist.

Kellie Curtis MD Radiologist, Pediatric Imaging

As a busy anesthesiology attending, delivering excellent clinical care is my singular focus. Orbit completely takes care of my CME for MOCA® 2.0 while I keep my eyes focused on what matters most - my patients.

Marissa Wagner Mery MD MBA Anesthesiologist, Critical Care Medicine

This is the kind of product I would recommend to my friends and colleagues in emergency medicine. Easier than listening to podcasts, Orbit lets me earn credit for articles I already access while caring for my ER patients. This plugin saves me time.

Amit Arwindekar MD MBA Emergency Medicine & Informatics

Each literature search is a learning opportunity, which Orbit recognizes with ABP-approved credit. It’s wonderful to see educational technology like Orbit that understands our workflow as pathologists.
