The training of a physicist is not limited to a list of specific subjects, but rather a set of conceptual tools which have united scientific communities for centuries, across a broad spectrum of research activities. Physicists define themselves more by the manner with which they approach a problem, rather than the nature of the problem itself.
Through basic training in mechanics, electromagnetism, thermodynamics, statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics, the physicist develops an inclination for a quantitative approach to the understanding of physical phenomena, a strong degree of abstraction and the search for common characteristics of universal problems.
