Perhaps your college has some sort of guidance office or career services staff?

The ideal scenario would be to somehow use both the biology knowledge with the interest in computers.... medical computing, medical imaging technology, healthcare management systems?

You need to sit down with a career counselor and try to figure out what sort of job role you are good at, determine what you think you want to do, and figure out how to get there. A lot of what you want to do depends, for example, on how well you work with people.

In the field of IT, there are some good jobs, but also an awful lot of really crappy and boring jobs. Before you dive into the world of IT, try to get an Internship at the sort of company or industry where you may want to work. An internship is a great way to find out what it's like in the real world.
