I believe the rates are different because "fleet doffs" are from a different pool (including specializations like the warfare specialists, which you'll never get from downgrading doffs).

While it appears to be working as intended, either my suggestion of making it so we can choose medical *or* science department would work and probably be less work for the devs than altering all the starbase projects to account for the disparity due to more science specializations than medical ones.
