Absolutely, I can think of no better term than medical student. Student doctor is an alternative I suppose, but less commonly used.
Note that the structure of teaching programs at medical schools, licensing requirements, examinations and so forth, differ widely throughout the world.
A physician who has completed medical school but is not yet fully licensed is referred to, in the United States, as an intern. The nomenclature and training program vary from country to country.
