Default What is our occupation now?

I have completed my med school abroad and now I am finishing the steps and will be applying for residency. So at this moment what is our occupation -- can we say 'doctor' , I mean yes we have completed our med school but in this country are we considered as doctors since we have not reached residency yet? Right now I am applying for renewal of my US passport and it asks for OCCUPATION and I was wondering if it is ok if I write doctor even-though I am not working as a doctor in the US yet... Please share your thoughts, thanks!!
