Sounds like you may need to have a talk with your supervisor and/or surgeon. As a certified first assistant with over 12 years of experience, your salary should be much higher. Now that you have attended a course in EVH, you must be able to use those new skills to get better. As a new harvestor, you will be slow in the beginning, but you will only get better with repeated attempts and pratice. Talk to your surgeon about this. Maybe you can split the EVH time with him. If those talks don't produce the results you are looking for...sadly your only other option is to stay there or move on. Alot of places are looking for experienced CVOR CFA's.....and if you are willing to can nearly double your salary. Good luck!
