Question Middle name problem

Hello. My middle name is present in my step applications and score reports, in my passport, drivers license and in my school transcripts. But my evaluations from various clinical rotations do not include my middle name or middle initial. They just contain my first and last name. Will this be a problem for ecfmg certification and residency applications? If so, how should I proceed- and what changes should I make or you can suggest, if any are required?

Thank you

Absent or initialized middle names DO NOT present any problems or issues with ECFMG or with ERAS.

You are good to go.
