How Orbit works

Optimized for DEA

Earn credit by reading abstracts and articles in controlled substances from peer-reviewed sources to earn DEA-required credit. Orbit awards 0.5 credits for each abstract or article.

Choose from our recommended list of articles, or search for abstracts on PubMed, NEJM, JAMA, and more that perfectly match your scope of practice in relation to controlled substances.

Orbit is compatible with Mac, PC, iPhone, or iPad. Email for help getting started.

What leading providers say


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

Life and patient care are hectic, and Orbit is part of my solution. I use the Orbit plugin to receive and document Category 1 CME based on articles I access in my family medicine practice. Focusing on patients instead of paperwork just got one step easier.

Amanda Lois PA-C PA in Geriatrics & Long-Term Care

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

Orbit's team is responsive and professional and their customer service is superb. Being current with peer-reviewed literature is paramount to our patient care, and Orbit's plugin recognizes that learning for MOCA® 2.0-compliant Category 1 CME.
