Yep it does appear on your transcript as DEF F (granted that you need to write the exam to pass the course) till you write the exam and then you get a DEF B (example) on your transcript.
Not a pretty sight, if you ask me. I would say ONE DEF would not affect you at all, but multiple ones (like one DEF every single semester) is sure to raise professors' eyebrows for grad school.
As far as med school is concerned I highly doubt they care. It's all about your GPA for them
