Median:-

Segment joining a vertex to the mid-point of opposite side is called a median.

Altitude:-

Perpendicular from a vertex to opposite side is called altitude.

Perpendicular Bisector:-

A Line which passes through the mid-point of a segment and is perpendicular on the segment is called the perpendicular bisector of the segment.

From the definitions you can see the differences.
