Minister of Health, Terrence Deyalsingh, made the announcement at Thursday's Post Cabinet Media Briefing.
He said some house doctors refuse job placement offers because of the job's remote location, or for various other reasons.
The Minister announced on Wednesday that Government would be heading to Cuba within the next few months to fill 250 vacancies for 11 specialist positions that could not be filled locally.
He said Cabinet also took a decision on Thursday regarding the Couva Hospital.
Minister Deyalsingh said the Couva Hospital will be owned and operated by the University of the West Indies with the Government as a minority shareholder.
The Couva Hospital will be used for education tourism to allow foreign students to pursue medical studies in Trinidad and Tobago, while there will also be a fee structure in place for members of the public wishing to access services at the hospital.
