Is there a career out there for someone who wants to go to medical school but doesn't want to practice medicine?

I'm very interested in studying the human body and mind, particularly illness and disease. However, being a doctor isn't for me. What else is out there?

The main reason I don't want to practice medicine is because I'm female and want to start a family someday. I just can't see myself studying anything else.
I'd like a job that tends to have 9-5 hours, with a flexible schedule, and one that pays 50-60k/yr minimum. I would also prefer to work with people on a regular basis.
Are there jobs out there that are like that and that would require knowledge of my interests? Am I being too picky?
