Knowledge sharing and reflective thinking are two key issues in any educational system. The present study examined the willingness of instructors of English for the students of allied medical sciences to share knowledge and think reflectively and investigated their reluctance to form knowledge sharing groups. To this aim, in the quantitative phase of the study, two questionnaires were completed by 148 instructors, while in the quantitative phase, 12 instructors participated in semi-structured interviews. Based on the results, the participants considered knowledge sharing effective and had a positive view about it. In addition, there was a significant relationship between knowledge sharing and reflective thinking, and knowledge sharing can be used to predict reflective thinking. The findings of the interview also indicated that three categories of factors play a role in the studied instructors' reluctance to share knowledge, which included individual, organizational and cultural barriers. Due to the importance of knowledge sharing, some suggestions were made to promote this practice among English for specific purposes (ESP) instructors.
