We have a careers in science page that you should visit. Also, go to google and type in "careers in chemistry and biology". There are hundreds. Everything ranging from a technician to a university professor. Jobs in health care, medicine, food, environment, drugs, bio- and medical- engineering, zoology and botany (animals and plants), and much more, are all open to you.

You will probably have to take a one-year introductory physics course in a typical pre-medicine program. Having a good background in mathematics and physics will help in all the sciences including biology and chemistry.
