    Can I call a doctor (junior/consultant) as a medic in general, or is medic only used for students?

    Just call them a doctor, no need to say medic. And there wouldn't really be a reason to refer to their grade or as a junior/consultant.

    Medic does sound more like a student, I'd just say Doctor

    'Medic' is an informal term and therefore probably not in keeping with the tone of your personal statement, which should come across as both professional and formal. As suggested above, use 'Doctor' or 'Surgeon' (where suitable).
