Communication among doctors in addressing a disease that involves the same disciplines and involves a wide range of different disciplines plays a very vital. Significant aspects of influence in the advancement of medical science are knowledge sharing activities as a form of follow-up communication activities. This study will examine knowledge sharing activities in the 5 (five) department in a teaching hospital in Indonesia. The method used to conduct surveys directly to the doctors who are selected as respondents by random sampling. The number of questionnaire were distributed to respondents as many as 200 pieces, while the questionnaires were returned and processed fruit totaled 192 with a net responses rate of 96%. This study shows that of the five hypotheses, there are three hypotheses supported. The conclusion of this study is that management support has no effect on intention to share knowledge, that doctors are mostly internal-driven, i.e. they share their knowledge because they enjoy doing it, not because management support this, and not that the knowledge involved is useful. This points to the difficulty of promoting knowledge sharing, that is, top management support or leadership may not be that effective (since the results show that management support has no effect) in driving knowledge sharing. Maybe what management can do is to ensure that they select doctors who are intrinsically motivated and like to help people.
