Background: There is little information published for experiential sites where pharmacy students do not round with prescribers. Aims: The goal of this retrospective study was to assess student interventions on an inpatient rotation in a private, nonacademic medical centre. Methods: Students (n=100) on rotation between June 2008 and March 2013 were included. Associations between acceptance rate (AR) and time and AR and number of interventions per student were assessed using the Cochran- Armitage Trend test. Results: A total of 1,114 interventions were analysed with a mean AR of 40.5% (451). There was a statistically significant increase in the probability of acceptance as the academic year progressed (p=0.0118) and an increase in the probability of acceptance as the years progressed from 2008 to 2013 (p=0.0118). Conclusion: This study demonstrated that as experience was gained through the academic year, written student interventions were more likely to be accepted by prescribers.
