Help a middle name problem

Years ago, I decided to delete my middle name from my passport, but in my new
passport (which I recieved 2 years ago) it still appears in brackets next to my first name.

I've read in this forum that the name used to register for usmle must be identical to the name written in my passport (including the brackets) and since I don't want my old middle name to appear in my diploma I'll get after finishing med school, I've decided to try to convince the officials in my country to delete the old middle name written in the brackets and leave only my first name and family name.

So, if I change my name at the passport like that- will it be ok to register without the old (and sticky) middle name?
