What is VesselHarvest.com?

We create EVH courses that are practical and to-the-point; we skip over the filler and go straight for the information you need to know.  After all, we’re harvesters too…and we know what you’re up against.

At VesselHarvest.com, we share the training we *should* have received when starting out as harvesters, then advancing as harvesters.  Too often harvesters only learn on real patients in a stressful OR environment, so we overlook crucial details that separate poor conduit quality from excellent conduit. 

Learn all the stuff you need to know about EVH outside the OR.

Who Are We?

Chris Darst, MPAS, PA-C

Co-Founder, Head of Operations and Other Fun Stuff

Chris has nearly 15 years of EVH experience as a PA in Cardiothoracic Surgery.  For over a decade, Chris has traveled the US, Europe, Middle East, and Asia teaching EVH skills to help harvesters learn new skills.  His audiences range from individual practices to large webinars with viewers in over 32 countries.  

When not replying to emails, planning new content, or figuring out how he broke the website, Chris helps other medical providers create and produce their own content with our parent company, Enlighten Medical Media Co.  (but he loves EVH most of all!) and fights off high school boys calling on his 3 daughters.

Garner Wilson, MMS, PA-C

Co-Founder, Faculty

Garner began his CT Surgery career in 2017 and immediately enjoyed the responsibility of EVH.  His more recent experience as a new harvester helps round out the VesselHarvest.com course content. Garner manages a team of 4 CT Surgery PAs day-to-day in a busy practice, and when he is not working he is traveling, flipping houses, and being a Dad to a future heartbreaker named Gavin.

Is it really possible to learn EVH with an online course?

In-person courses require travel and days away from work.  Generally these trainings are forced to use models anyway due to the high costs/regulations of cadaver use.

Some industry-sponsored trainings use simulations which can be helpful, but they usually can’t cover the technical & clinical details that we cover in our courses (because they aren’t clinicians as we are).

You can watch and re-watch these lessons at home or on the go whenever you want so you’re ready to go in the OR.  It’s the next best thing to having one of us standing with you in the OR.

Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

Investing in your harvesting education can only improve your understanding of the procedure and enhance your skills.  If you’re not satisfied with the content of our courses, we’ll refund 100% of your course fee*.

*Some restrictions apply.  We cannot refund a course fee if CME hours have been claimed.

Do you offer a group discount?

If your practice has several harvesters, a VesselHarvest.com subscription is a better option than individual purchases.

Visit our Subscription Page here for more info and to get in touch with us.

How long do I have access?

You’ll have a full year of unlimited access to your course (365 full days!).  Watch as many times as you need and review before/after performing cases.

Do I have to be a practicing provider to go through these courses?

No, anyone. is welcome to take these courses: students, practicing providers, or interested general public/patients.

PLEASE NOTE: Because these courses are designed for medical professionals, they contain graphic surgical images and video.

Do I need to complete all the lessons?

We recommend you complete all lessons to give you the most broad and complete understanding of the EVH procedures.

To obtain CME credit, a certificate of completion, and to be a verified graduate in our job database, you’ll need to complete all lessons, quizzes, and tests.

How does my potential employer verify my completion?

Upon successful completion of a VH.com course, you are eligible to list “VesselHarvest.com Certified” on your resume; potential employers can verify your good standing via our website.
