Default First Aid default problem

I am creating characters for GURPS Prime Directive game. I stumbled upon the following. I have doctor character that has Physician (Human) -18, First Aid (Human) -18, Diagnosis (Human) -15, and Surgery (human) -15. He also has Physician (Arcturan) and Physician (Orion) as well as First Aid, Diagnosis and Surgery for both species. By setting the default between Human and Orion, and Human and Arcturan is -5 to the medical skill.
But First Aid (Arcturan) and First Aid (Orion) default to Physician (Human) and not to their respective species.
How do I fix this?

I believe you'll have to manually change the default for each of the skills that are defaulting from Physician (Human). For each one, change the default bit for

, SK:Physician,

to

, "SK:Physician (SPECIALTY)",

where SPECIALTY is either Orion or Arcturan as appropriate.

The current default from Physician in each case is generic, so it'll take any Physician skill, rather than the specific one to which you want it related.

I did try to change it as you wrote above MANY times, but deffrom stays at Physician (Human) and the First Aid skill goes up to 150 or more. I tried to change deffrom but GCA won't allow it

That error happens if you don't put the quotes around the skill name exactly as shown above.

Yes, in the text for the default() tag. At least, if the reference you mean is the GCA Data File Reference Guide, not the help file.
