Her worked included contributing to two federally funded grant projects, the National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home and the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Program, as well as two pediatrician-led membership groups focused on children and youth who have experienced trauma. In her role at the American Academy of Pediatrics, Müge worked with multi-disciplinary stakeholders to design and implement a multidisciplinary, mixed-methods systems evaluation of a 19-year-old member-led initiative focused on care for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
