What leading providers say


pathCast is excited to partner with Orbit because we share a common mission to celebrate education in pathology. I recommend Orbit because it rewards the self-driven learning that is vital to our audience at pathCast, and our academic pathologists at Penn.

Rifat Mannan MD Gastrointestinal Pathology

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.

Agedi Boto MD PhD Anatomic Pathology

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

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

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
