A work permit is issued by a company that employs you and offers an Emirates ID and visa, while a business license enables you to sponsor yourself and receive an investor visa of your own.
The work permit package includes your medical fitness exam (blood test and chest X-Ray) and you will have to present yourself at a dedicated center, chosen by your employer which might be outside Dubai. You can also opt out to have your tests done in any other facility, at you own cost.
Note: Only a valid Fit To Work certificate will enable you to have your Emirates ID issued.
For activities such as media or professional, the permit can be issued based on your CV, previous experience and a short business plan. Academic or Educational activities do require a certificate.
