Question Membership in Honorary/Professional Societies

On the CAF, there's a section: Membership in Honorary/Professional Societies, what can/what do FMG's put in this section. I feel awkward leaving it blank.

Thank you

If you are a member of a professional organization like the Indian Medical Association or anything else then write that there. I don't think it will be a big issue if you leave it blank. Although If you are ECFMG certified then you can become a member of the AMA as well :
