The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between knowledge sharing behaviour and the demographic variables gender, age, Education level, Position and professional tenure/experience. The study sourced its data from teaching faculty of medical colleges of Bengaluru in Karnataka, India. Knowledge sharing behaviour was measured using an instrument sourced from the extant literature. A survey of 600 respondents using the questionnaire as data collection method was conducted. The results show that demographic variables are not significant predictors of practitioner?s knowledge sharing quality. No statistically significant relationship was detected between knowledge sharing behaviour and gender, age, or professional tenure/experience. Thus, according to these findings, demographic variables do not appear to be important determinants of knowledge sharing behaviour.
