no! you don't even HAVE to have a degree to get into a pharmacy program. All you need to do is compete the prerequisites that your school of interest requires and then take the PCAT and apply to pharmacy schools. Pre med has nothing to do with pharmacy.

No you do not. Typically, the PhD is not a medical degree. However, it is possible to take a PhD in a health related field as well as other fields. Pre-med is particular to individuals who wish to become a physician.

Should one definitely be premed if they want to go into public health or is studying public health at an undergrad level and taking some sciencemath good enough if your major is in the liberal arts?

I guess the real answer is it depends what you want to do in public health. No, you do not need to take the premed track if you would like to be a public health professional. In fact, you do not need any of the premed science requirements to get in to most MPH programs. Figure out what in public health you would like to do first (epidemiology, global health, health promotion, health policy, etc).
