Default Does Pharmacy (Herbal) Default to Physician?

We're dealing with a character who has some of the same skills at various tech levels. Ordinarily, if you have an IQ skill at one TL, you have the skill at one TL lower at -1 by default (GURPS Basic Characters 4th edition pg. 168). For example, Physician/TL5 would default to Physician/TL6 -1.

The problem is the skill of Physician/TL4 and lower does not exist in most gaming worlds (GURPS Basic Characters 4th edition pg. 213), but instead "physicians" use Esoteric Medicine or Pharmacy (Herbal). In a particular world, the equivalent of Physician/TL4 is Pharmacy (Herbal)/TL4.

So my question is, would Pharmacy (Herbal)/TL4 default to Physican/TL5 -1?
