what Does Oversimplified mean?

In this context oversimplified does not mean inaccurate, it means cut back to the bare essentials! Healthcare learning (be it medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, etc.) is over-brimming with complex terminology, obscure vocabulary, and ever more complex layers of anatomy and physiology.  While all this detail is of course essential in the treatment of the complex beings that are humans, it can be prohibitively complex and intimidating when you're taking your first steps into a topic. 

Oversimplified aims to cut back the detail so you can get to grips with the core principles and theories of a topic before you get tangled up in the details.
